libspectre -> libgs >= 8.61 problem

Morning All:
While installing the kde4 port, I got to libspectre. The libspectre port insists
that I must have libgs to compile it. After a little research, I found that
this is a ghostscript library. So I installed the ghostscript-8.63 port. noe,
libspectre insists that I have to have libgs version >= 8.61. I checked
/usr/local/lib and found the following:

ls -l libgs.* ->
libgs.so8 ->

So I'm guessing there's a problem in the configure script, but if there is, I
can't find it. Then again, maybe I'm just missing something simple.

Any ideas, anyone?

And a time to every purpose under heaven.
