Which is good.

That does not solve the conflict between fink an /usr/local/bin, which 
is the default location for ghostscript and thus also the location where 
my ghostscript is installed. Maybe, David, a system-gs package would be 
helpful as well. I have had people contacting me to ask how they could 
get fink to accept the gs I ship as they wanted lyx (whatever that is) 
and fink says it requires gs for that. But they do not want the fink gs 
as it conflicts with Apple's Quartz engine in certain cases.
