Not a great surprise, given how old qt3 is ... try removing the configure flag "-system-libpng" so that qt3 uses its internal version instead of the system-provided version. "We" might want to create a "libpng12" port that installs into $[prefix}/libexec, just for ports such as this one that, generally, cannot easily be made compatible with newer libpng versions.

FYI: Removing "-system-libpng" from the config flag doesn't work here...trying if QT4 will work with the X11 program I need to install

Looks like an easy fix.

   a. We changed the names of the png_struct and info_struct members "trans"
      and "trans_values" to "trans_alpha" and "trans_color", respectively.

Gentoo bug with correct-looking patch:

yep I can confirm the gentoo patch works! qt3 was succesfully compiled
