The Ghostscript package has been updated to include support for the
libpng and zlib shared libraries, as suggested by Chuck Wilson.  In
addition, the package also now has a new setup.hint file included.

This release of Ghostscript is an "X-less" version, i.e. doesn't
require the cygwin-xfree libraries to run.  This version does not
support direct preview.  In order to preview Postscript output, it's
necessary to rasterize the output to a graphics format (for example,
PDF or JPEG) and viewed with a suitable viewer.

For build instructions, please read:


The instructions have also been included at the end of this message.

I want to thank Chuck Wilson for uploading the package.
