        magicfilter installs filters that invoke ghostscript for processing
        postscript files.  When magicfilter is used as a filter for lpd and
        a postscript file is printed, ghostscript fails to open its temp
        file and spits out an error "**** Unable to open the initial device,
        Install print/magicfilter using all defaults, create a printer
        that specifies :if=/usr/pkg/libexec/magicfilter/#blah#: and then
        print a postscript file. (#blah# is whatever filter you want to
        use for your printer!)
        The following patch updates the configure script to set the TEMP
        environment variable to /tmp when executing ghostscript:

        Also need to provide checksum in pkgsrc/print/magicfilter/distinfo:
