Ghostscript-gpl(-*) installs/upgrades require the SA to go through a long 'dialog' list of printers to (de-)select those approoiate for the site.  In other ports these options are saved in /var/db/ports/$app.  Would be _very_ nice if ghostscript did the same, particularly given the number of options and frequency of updates.
cd /usr/ports/print/ghostscript... ; make
