Nah, it seems that Gimp must be writing something in the images that the
version of teTeX I was using couldn't handle. A rebuild (rpm -ba ...) and a
reinstall did the trick. Got it linked against libpng 1.0.10.

Hmmm, OK, you are saying that pdfTeX can handle PDF OK, but I just checked
the DocBook 4.1 DTD (dbnotn.mod) and it does not appear to accept PDF as an
input type ...

I may have to hack the DTD to fix that ...
