Version 1.5.12 of libpng

Release Notes: This release makes a one-byte change to the pre-built, to address CVE-2012-3386, which reports a vulnerability in automake. It is not necessary to rebuild libpng applications built with earlier versions of libpng. The change only protects the libpng maintainer who is running "make distcheck" even after setting a safe umask.
