This was under stable/6; it may be relevant to note that as I have 4
slices configured on my laptop's disk, each of which is bootable
(stable/6, stable/7, stable/8, & head), /usr/ports is actually a symlink
from each of those slices to a file system that is mountable regardless
of which slice is booted.

The fetch eventually ompleted; the build started, but ended thus:

checking for strerror... yes
checking for strrchr... yes
checking for strspn... yes
checking for strstr... yes
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating cups/pstopxl
config.status: creating cups/pstoraster

As a reality check:

g1-119(6.4-S)[4] ls -lT /bkp/ports/print/ghostscript8/work/ghostscript-8.70/base/write*
ls: No match.

(Though I note that /bkp/ports/print/ghostscript8/work/ghostscript-8.70/base/
does seem to be populated with several other files.)
