I got the same. I used Fink to install libpng (which had some more

I then ran into a similar problem with ImageMagick (shared):
dyld: /usr/local/bin/pd can't open library: /usr/local/lib/
libMagick.6.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

As it's in /usr/local/lib, I'm assuming Yves had built it without Fink,
but it's unclear how we users build it (especially as it presumably has
dependencies on Fink packages).

I'm capable of building these libraries manually, but it's a real pain to
track down the dozens that pdp/pidip seems to rely upon, so I am really
looking forward to having a workable, all-included package.
