My favorite is at:
This includes some drivers that aren't in most binaries I've seen, like
the stcolor driver.
As to libraries, note that the ghostscript-fonts* libraries may be called
different things by different RPMs, but they likely have all the same
files, probably in the same places. Therefore, if you see a failed
dependency because of this, check that you've got SOME Ghostscript fonts
RPM installed (or have the files installed manually) and use the --nodeps
switch to rpm to get it to install. It'll probably work fine, and if it
doesn't a symbolic link or new Fontmap file will fix it. Libraries like
libpng may pose greater problems, but even then it might work if you've
got the "wrong" version.
