Glenn, According to your comments (see below), the problem I addressed some weeks ago, was caused by the FreeBSD port at some stage during the upgrade to version 7.07 of ghostscript-gnu.
Presently 7.07 has port upgrade "_3". I wonder if the problem has been addressed and solved by now. I am asking, since I am afraid it may be difficult/impossible to downgrade again, after upgrading the 7.07_3. My current version check says: cups-pstoraster-7.05.6 < needs updating (port has 7.07) ghostscript-gnu-7.05_4 < needs updating (port has 7.07_3) Thanks for your help, Rob.
