An FYI regarding:

This problem has existed for me for many months, if not more. Currently:

-rw-r--r--    1 110      1002     11407910 Oct 07 11:33 ghostscript8-8.71_6.tbz
4a2328c262b08dc78938c66548117d27dc6a3586 ghostscript8-8.71_6.tbz

running the command: gv
Unknown device: x11
Unrecoverable error: undefined in .uninstallpagedevice
Operand stack:

For reference, 'gsview' is the only viewer that currently seems to work
out of: ghostview, gsview, gv, [xpdf untested]
[Figured Java AcrobatViewer should be deprecated at over 10 years old!]

Also, though they work, the page set selector buttons right under the
reload button in 'gv' do not render right and appear scrambled and too

Will probably try compiling current source tarballs by hand till then.
