Unfortunately, for TL5c gs 5.50 can be only found in souces
(support/ghostscript/). Please download and install more newer version
from CTAN, e.g.: ftp://ftp.dante.de/

(I cannot recommend the latest version 7.0)

TeX Live 6 contains gs 6.50 ready to install (without gsview, which is
unfortunately not free). TL6 will be soon available for the members of
any TeX Users Group.
