We've been attempting to aggregate what we (WR) can in:


But as it's unofficial and we're simply trying to keep the patches we know of 
together..  you'll have to be patient.  The first order of business is getting a 
functional qemuarm64.. it's MOSTLY there, but we're having toolchain issues and 
other things that are simply higher priority for us.

As for libpng, we have a different version of the patch in that branch...  it 
was enough to get around the problem in question, but may not be the correct fix.
