ghostscript 9.05 in current


I can't find "gstoraster" in ghostscript-9.05-i486-1.txz package,
Is it my mistake?

Thanks

This is an issue with the SlackBuild. New ghostscript requires that you explicitly tell configure to compile the cups filter.
This .diff file will fix that. I notified Pat V. and assume that the package in -current will get fixed soon.

Code:

--enable-cairo and also the README are no longer valid, so it can be removed from the SlackBuild
