So I have two machines, both Macs on OSX 10.13.6, and one runs
fine, and the other doesn't. 

The working one is 2.19.82, so the dev branch installed from the
LilyPond website (I guess)

The broken one is 2.18.2, installed from homebrew. Lilypond seems
to work fine, however it breaks on using ghostscript. It seems this
version was built against an older version of the gs dynamic library
and now it spits the dummy, but it does produce the .ps file:

---< cut >---
$ lilypond --png WMX4LBIK6L3LQEX4WG
GNU LilyPond 2.18.2

Converting to PNG...dyld: Library not loaded: 
  Referenced from: 
  Reason: image not found

fatal error: GS exited with status: 6
---< cut >---

Running ps2pdf (from the new version of ghostscript) produces a correct 
PDF of the lilypond input. 

Downloading and installing the development version[1] seems to fix the 
problem (I run the cammandline and I get the --png I am after). 


 .. mark.
