Whatever the reasons for having two different GS-ports, the apsfilter insists
on the version 7.x (ghostscript-gnu), which, indeed, seems to have a wider
selection of drivers:
Found ghostscript version 8.61 ...
You have to upgrade at least to gs version 6.50!
But you should upgrade to gs 7.00 for full driver support
prior installing printers with SETUP.
Do you you want to continue? [Y/n]
Yet, some other port (teTeX?) installed ghostscript-gpl and I'm now forced to
replace one with the other to regain the use of printer (Brother-1270, using
the hl1250 driver)...
Is it time for "USE_GHOSTSCRIPT" knob?
