So are you installing (-f force overwrite?) ghostscript7 after gv
installs 8?

Hmm... given that with my package set on RELENG_8, in today's list
of i386/packages-8-stable we have the following list of conflicts
on 7 and pkgdeps on 8, I'm a bit confused as to how things work.

Were I to install 7 first, it looks like gv/gsview are going to try
installing 8 over top of it? And they will fail as 8 conflicts.

Were I to install 7 last, it may break the apps that dep on the
newer 8 due to binary, feature and clobbering issues.

Yet curiously, gsview does display fine with 8 (no x11 error) yet
I do not have 7 installed (the one claimed to work with gv without
and x11 error, as in your case).

My state is clean as I rm -rf /usr/local, which also contains the
pkg database for that instance, before installing the local package
