When including a PNG file in pdftex, the program crashes with the error
   libpng error: Application must be recompiled; version 1.0.6 was

This can be verified by the following command sequence
  cd /usr/share/texmf/doc/pdftex/base
  pdftex example.tex
(You must have appropriate permissions to create files in this directory.)

As a temporary fix, fall back to RH6.2
  <Insert RH6.2 Binary 1>
  cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
  rpm -Uvh --force tetex-*

I don't have time to track the bug and fix this myself right now.  Sorry.
