Thanks, that was it!
Still, since the lilypond installer already contains a patched gs, there
had to some other problem.
As it turned out, the method lilypond uses to locate its gs binary is not
fool-proof: in my case, the lilypond 2.8.1 installation picked up the old
gs 8.15 binary from the 184.108.40.206 installation.
This is probably due to the following definition in
(search-executable '("gs-nox" "gs-8.15" "gs")))
lilypond 2.8.1 does not have gs-nox, but lilypond 220.127.116.11 does.
The old installation path was still in my PATH, so even though lilypond
2.8.1 prepends its own path to the PATH, the gs search first finds the old
By the way, "gs-8.15" does not really make sense here when the gs version
bundled with lilypond is 8.50.
On the whole, since lilypond comes with so many required libraries and
executables which are very likely to be already installed on the user's
system in different versions, it is a bit dangerous to rely on the PATH or
other enviroment variables. It would be safer to refer to all required
binaries relative to the installation root.

fix it (if you're prepared to recompile Ghostscript).
