I've uploaded all of the above to sourceware.org after giving them a
very perfunctory inspection.

I edited the setup.hint files.  The '@ ghostscript' line is an artifact
and should not be used.  And, the prev, curr tags should only be used
when the version sorting is not obvious.

I think that ghostscript is non-core enough that we can get by with
having a few bugs in packaging if you are willing to monitor the cygwin
mailing list and respond to bugs.

Thanks for doing this.  I appreciate your taking over as maintainer.  I
can't believe that it has been more than two years since the last
