	When a2ps is installed without perl, the ogonkify scripts and data are not installed.
	The Makefile should be fixed to install them anyway, even though the scripts will
	not work (or the installation/packaging system should be informed that a different
	PLIST should be used).

	It also seems that the same Makefile has some dependencies on (for example, see
	the patch below) that should be dependencies on compose itself.  The same may be true
	for versus ogonkify.
	Install the a2ps package when perl is not installed.
	Apply the following patch:
