Yes, but Gerben has removed the dynamic libraries (.dylib) and kept  
only the static binaries (.a), some time ago already. From the i- 
Package ReadMe:

• Completely removed the dynamic libraries. I have had one serious
report about Apple software like Finder and Safari going haywire in
Mac OS X 10.4.6 when there are standard open source libpng dylibs
available in /usr/local/lib. The error turned out to be the result of
the user fiddling with environment.plist, but I decided to remove the
dylibs anyway.

An alternative would have been to use these static binaries and the -- 
enable-static and --disable-shared options of configure, as suggested  
by Joanthan, but I didn't try that.
