Can't recognize PNG's.. what library provides support for them?


When XFCE (or the Graphical Greeter for GDM) tries to open a PNG, I get the following error: "<program name> /path/to/file.png Couldn't recognize the image file format".
I'm guessing that whatever library provides support for PNGs was uninstalled in the RH 9 to Fedora Core 1 upgrade, but I'm not sure what that library is.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Excuse me while I go shoot myself for not remembering something so obvious.
Thanks acid, it worked.
