Thank you.  Unfortunately the AFPL doesn't allow us to distribute
that version of ghostscript, since it doesn't follow any open source
license approved by OSI, see

Also see the explicit remark starting the second paragraph of the AFPL:

"This License is not an Open Source license".

Please stick with GNU ghostview or some equivalent, open source licensed
