After some time playing with this, I found that the ghostscript
transition to gs-gpl is now possible.
But I don't think we can make cups-pstoraster work well with gs-afpl.
Memory management in gs-afpl is too different and I think we must wait
to main cups changes.
This show me the need to change bsd.port.mk when we move to gs-gpl to
add a WITH_GHOSTSCRIPT_GNU.
Due to the ports freeze, I doubt this can be take before 5.4, but I'll
try, at last, have the changes to gs ports taken before freeze.
Also, I doubt in the correct form to take this. Let me know what is
prefered: a follow-up to current PR with all the patches or a suspend
and split aproach (To make possible take part of this).
thanks in advance,
