Hi!  You can ignore the vgetty and egetty stuff.

There are several different ways to install gs, and it isn't entirely
necessary for hylafax (I guess), so it isn't automatically installed by the

In ports/print, there are five different ghostscript distributions.
Depending on your politics, you can use ghostscript-afpl[-nox11] or
