Patience :) This is a preliminary step along the way to a fully merged
ghostscript-6.01 package (which I just got to compile correctly on my
machine). I had to split the freetype and ja-vflib packages into X11
and non-X11 bits (library and utility bits) to get it to work with the
-x11, -nox11 ghostscript structure. But I didn't want vfghostscript5
builds to break in the meantime, hence this change.
I hope to get ghostscript committed in the next few days. I just have
some questions to ask of the email@example.com people
concerning the Japanese support for ghostscript.
