Very odd as I haven't (knowingly) changed the configure.

Whatever works I suppose but Makefile hacking is a little dicey as
the makefile can be rewritten by auto configuration. Perhaps
adding   --with-pngdriver=/usr/local     to the configure would
have worked or, in your case    make "CFLAGS= -L/usr/local/lib"
might have been OK.

I'd be interested to know whether anyone else has seen this /usr/local/lib
