First ... you should not top post to the mailing list :D  There are some 
guidelines to posting on the Mailing Lists here:

Specifically, we prefer the "Interleaved text" method described here:

On to your question ...

It looks like you have a version of libpng12.so.0 that does not have 
something that is needed by the rest of the system.

The "/opt/zenoss/lib/libpng12.so.0" seems to no like 
FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden that is in /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2.

What probably needs to happen is that you need to install the CentOS 
version of libpng from our updates repository which contains 
/usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 and it has all the right things for the other GUI 

I have no idea how you installed zenoss or if it needs a custom libpng 
library, but the one you have installed is not working with CentOS.
