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.
