Fabrice, maybe you can comment on this. Is it a Ghostscript problem?

Lack of space was what drove it off, and the assumption that it is so
universal. I can try to find space next time.

GS is a pig, because of needing to set a pointer to its support files,
which is hard to explain. Do you mean for Win32, or Unix as well?

I really hope that someone will volunteer to get down and clean this
up. I am happy that we have the mechanism in place to classify
packages, but I am not happy that my fairly old and quick
classification was right.
But also note that the win32 setup was NOT based on the same material
as the Unix ones; it had its own ideas, which did not turn out quite
right. Next time I would hope that Unix and win32 will be identical in
