Dear Gabriel,
I believe the gpresent web site says that groff is required -- the old troff
just doesn't do it (for instance, with color).
groff (version 1.18.1 dated Oct 3, 2002 or higher/later) with the mm macros
(included with groff) --
perl (version 5.x) for presentps --
ps2pdf which comes with Ghostscript (version 5.x or higher) --
acroread (version 4.x) --
Since these are all available for Windows, Linux, and Unix, you can make and
run your presentation on almost every platform."
