I believe this is a small misunderstanding of how vpath works.
vpath changes the _search path_ for files, but does not affect which
files are actually compiled.   That is defined in
and pnggccrd.c is notably absent from that file.
If you actually try a clean build, on any platform,
you will see no references to pnggccrd (or pngvcrd)
in the logs (prove me wrong!).
