Think i'm one from guys who's responsible for gcc libs. But i can't see why
we need to use different png libs for mingw and msvc.

Basically, only libraries which are using C++ should be definitely split,
but if C++ isn't used in libs it should be possible to use them in both of
mcvc and gcc. If it's impossible, probably it's a mistake in build
environment or configuration.
