The current print/ghostscript fails to compile under Solaris. These changes are 
necessary to produce a binary:

--- ghostscript/Makefile        Fri Sep  5 17:50:03 2008
+++ ghostscript.patched//Makefile       Fri Oct 17 09:33:03 2008

-.if ${OPSYS} == "NetBSD"
+.if ${OPSYS} == "NetBSD" || ${OPSYS} == "SunOS"
 CFLAGS+=               -fPIC

And someone (sed? the shell?) does not like this in configure:

                drivers="`echo $drivers |sed -e \"s/$THIS,//\"`"

(line 10682 in ghostscript-8.63). When changed to

                drivers="`echo $drivers |sed -e "s/$THIS,//"`"

(i.e. dropping the backslashes), the code works.

Unfortunately, the binary that is now generated, bails out with

$ gs

The reason for this is unclear to me. A ghostscript built outside pkgsrc, but 
using tools and libraries from there, works just fine. This might indicate a 
cause in the pkgsrc build framework. The problem was already present in 
ghostscript 8.62 from e.g. 2008Q2.

A diff between the two build directories revealed no obvious reason for this 
behaviour (to me). I can provide these directories, if someone else wants to 
have a look.
