Both are needed by TeX4ht. Automatic conversion of PS or EPS images  
to PDF for pdfTeX needs Ghostscript. Optimisation of PDF output needs  

ImageMagick 6.4.0 uses, in its Fink package:

	bzip2		Block-sorting file compressor
	fontconfig2	Font configuration library
	freetype2	TrueType font rendering library
	gconf2		GNOME configuration database system
	glib2		GNOME C library
	gtk+2		GNOME Tool Kit
	libbonobo2	GNOME component and compound document system
	libgsf		GNOME Structured File library
	orbit		The CORBA ORB used in GNOME
	lcms		Free color management engine
	libjasper	Library for manipulating JPEG-2000 images
	libjpeg		JPEG image format library
	libpng		PNG image format library
	librsvg		SAX-based render library for SVG files
	libtiff		TIFF image format library
	libwm		Windows Metafile library
	openexr		Dynamic-range OpenEXR image file tools
	libart		Library for high-performance 2D graphics
	libxml2		XML parsing library
	expat		C library for parsing XML
	libcroco	CSS parsing and manipulation library
	libhowl		Cross-platform implementation of Zeroconf
	libiconv	Character set conversion library
	pango		I18N text handling system
	libgettext	GNU Internationalization utilities
	popt		Library for parsing command line options
	X11		Window system
	Ghostscript	Interpreter for PostScript and PDF
	libdjvulibre	Free viewer for DjVu files (who needs it?)

Some of the options might need to be enabled, as it is done in the  
Fink package:

	--without-perl --without-dps --without-fpx --without-gslib --without- 
gvc --with-gs-font-dir=%p/share/ghostscript/fonts --mandir='${prefix}/ 
share/man' --with-bzlib --with-jpeg --with-lcms --with-png --with- 
tiff --with-xml --with-zlib --with-djvu --with-fontconfig --with-x -- 
with-rsvg --with-magick-plus-plus --enable-libtool-verbose --enable-hdri

This could be another useful option: --enable-osx-universal-binary.  
It sets:

     CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk -arch  
ppc -arch i386"
     CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk - 
arch ppc -arch i386"
     LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS -Wl,-syslibroot,/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk  
-arch ppc -arch i386"

If an up-to-date GraphViz is installed then its libgvc could be used.  
The option --without-perl is used because the Perl module to  
interface ImageMagick is another Fink package. There seems to be, at  
least in Mac OS X 10.3, a problem with Apple's libpoll. Therefore  
Fink patches the configure script.
