Currently the installed Ghostscript in the template uses the host's X11
libraries. For example in [1] you can see the full list of libraries that the
template's Ghostscript depends on.

This can cause problems on some systems, for example on one Ubuntu 18.04.3
LTS, `libXext' (X11 miscellaneous extensions library) wasn't present during
the build of Ghostscript, and it complained with `ld: cannot find -lXext'. 

We should add native builds of the necessary (and possible!) X11 libraries
also. Until then, we should put a check so when its necessary, the user knows
what is missing before starting to compile Ghostscript.

[1] List of the libraries linked with the template's Ghoscript:
