VirtualBox 3.1.0 doesn't compile with libpng 1.4.0 betas => Fixed in SVN

Description

VirtualBox 3.1.0 fails to compile with libpng 1.4.0 betas because it uses some libpng macros that have been deprecated forever and removed in 1.4.0:

png_voidp_NULL png_error_ptr_NULL png_infopp_NULL

Since they've never been defined to anything other than NULL casted to various types, it is safe to replace them with NULL or 0 unconditionally.

Attaching a patch that does that.
