As the gs-no-X11 does something that gs-X11 does no do, that is it works
X11 DLLs, my question was not rhetorical, it was stupid. Nevertheless that
solve the problem of the conflict between the two programs. I suggest doing
1- Having a unique ghostscript package, with both gs-x.exe and gs.no-x.exe.
2- Install all executables, including both gs programs in /bin.
3- If X11 is installed then copy gs-x.exe to gs.exe, otherwise copy
gs.no-x.exe to gs.exe
Happy New Year
