As root, go to the port directory with 'cd /usr/ports/print/ghostscript8'. 
Type 'make config' and disable the two SVGA lib drivers. You can use the
PageUp and PageDown keys to scroll through the list of drivers. Disable
anything you don't need. Then issue the commands 'make clean', and 'make
install clean' to build and install the software.
