Well this should not technically be true for the following reason:

The bitmaps_png/CMakeLists.txt file is designed to allow folks to build Kicad
and NOT be PNG maintainers.  This means the PNG images are already built in our
source tree as *.cpp files.

This means your patch is broken if you think people should be building the
cpp_26/*.cpp files.

These files are part of the repo, and do not have to be rebuilt, ever, unless
you want to be a maintainer.
So what is wrong with the patch? 

1) it did not include the pre-built *.cpp files, according to your own words.
