Log Message:
Update pstoedit to 3.50.

While here, remove restriction, it's "please", not "have to".

New or changed in 3.50:

    * added an option (-gs) to specify the full path to GhostScript (under
      Windows - either the .exe or the DLL). This can be used by portable
      applications to direct pstoedit to use a specific GhostScript version.
    * Stanislav Brabec contributed several improvements to the PCB driver. See on how these can be useful.
    * Scott Pakin submitted several improvements to the mpost driver and the
      font substitution mechanism.
    * new driver for .vtk files e.g. for ParaView -
      - but this is still a very basic version. Thanks to Mitesh Patel for
      initiating and testing.
    * new driver for cairo ( ) contributed by Dan
      McMahill. This driver generates C-code which can be compiled and linked
      against the cairo libraries. See the contrib/cairo directory for an
    * several improvements on the DXF driver as suggested and sponsored by
      Markus Meyer.
    * because pstoedit may write its output to stdout, all output written by
      GhostScript to stdout is now redirected to stderr in order to avoid mixed
    * added a -q option to suppress the initial startup message of pstoedit.
      This can by useful when being called via a pipe, e.g. from inkscape.
      However, note that this does not suppress all output written to stderr -
      see also note above.
    * John Bowman fixed a number of problems related to clipping and image
      support for the Asymptote backend.
    * fixed a compilation problem with g++ V4.x.
    * new driver for gcode (.ngc files) (tested with emc see Contributed by Lawrence Glaister.
    * some adaptations for newer versions of libming
    * fixed a line width problem for xfig format.
    * corrected the broken pstoedit.m4 - thanks to Ian Abbott
    * some minor code beautifying.
