The problem was in the configuration of kaffe: I did not
defined HAVE_LIBPNG, so the drawing function just did nothing!

Now I have 2 more problems:

when starting kaffe, it do not find the symbols in libpng:
I setted LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but with no success, while the
following is successful:


is there a clean way to make kaffe find what it needs?

the second problem is that images are shown very slowly: 
a window repaint (with a png of just a few k) needs several
second to repaint: this slow down is present only if I 
have some image in the frame.

any idea what could cause this?
