that's a great one to hear, thank you!

I'll try it out over the weekend.

When converting certain PDF files to PostScript pdf2ps (from the
Ghostscript package) will print the following error messages:

**** Error reading a content stream. The page may be incomplete.
Output may be incorrect.
**** Error: File did not complete the page properly and may be damaged.
Output may be incorrect.

Unfortunately this is something that affects also printing from
pdfs. At this point I can see what my printing result will look like
by opening it in GNU Emacs DocView.

Good news everyone! Commit 466ff55c72959ba1499ce3ec69f534b3038eb30b
fixes it! The next commit makes a graft so that the working Ghoscript
is readily available to CUPS, etc.

It turned out that the primary issue was that Freetype was not found at
configure-time, due to the lack of pkg-config… The commit above
improves a couple of other things in passing, but adding Freetype for
good is apparently the decisive change.

Please let me know if DocView, pdf2ps, and CUPS and all right for you!
