Thanks for the help.  I tried presetting the flags as you suggested  
with and without "kpathsea" but the output is still the same:

checking for kpse_set_progname in -lkpathsea... no
configure: error: cannot find/use libkpathsea

This is very strange since dvipng 1.6 is installed with MacTeX and is  
working. Does having libkpathsea  owned by system cause a problem?  
I'm so ignorant about these things it is embarrassing. Thanks
