Doesn't look like my last attempt to reply was successful. Sorry if this
seems to be a repeat. I checked if I had two versions of gs. Yes, one in
/usr/local/bin & one in /usr/share/bin. "Which gs" said I use
/usr/local/bin/gs (which is the 8.15 version) The other, which I thought
I'd got rid of was the 7.07 version. And obviously the one autoinstaller
was finding, so I was brave and reckless and "rm /usr/share/bin/gs" 'ed
it. This did the trick and I am now the proud owner of the latest,
greatest version of lilypond. Now all I have to do is sit down and study
the manual to brush up on  new techniques.
