I am in favor of a system-ghostscript package. I know several people who are very reluctant to install Fink packages that might depend on ghostcript, because they have a working TeXShop/teTeX/ghostscript installation and are afraid to break it. I understand Jeff's arguments, but nobody will be *forced* to install system-ghostscript, anyway. > Anyway, Jeff's other objection about this particular case was that the > system-ghostscript package would be fragile and easily broken.

If you have something that works and maintain it, who can still object? _______________________________________________ Fink-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/fink-devel
