Okay, I've uploaded Dario's new packages to /contrib/ghostscript on 
sourceware.  (I went "live" directly since (a) cgf, you'd already looked 
at Dario's first version, and the only difference between the new 
version and his first version were that he had stripped the binary, and 
repackaged as 6.51-1{-src}.tar.bz2. instead of 6.51{-src}.tar.gz.)
