Description ta2002 2007-04-07 13:54:16 UTC
Yes, I want ghostscript-esp (smaller and I already have it on all of my other machines).

Basically a brand new install (not much on the machine after "emerge -e system").

# emerge -pv ghostscript-esp
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

You can just p.mask the other ghostscripts (-gpl, -gnu) to work around this.
