I search for Ghostscript ELF compiled for DosLinux with printer drivers for
Canon BJC 600 and Apple ImageWriter II.
Thanks for some help.

1. Compiling ghostscript on ELF Linux

Hello all,

I posted a message yesterday about compiling ghostscript as ELF.  Well,
turned out that gs4.03 *does* compile, like someone else pointed out,
unlike gs4.01 or earlier, which didn't compile unless you applied a
to them.

gs4.03 still contains a bug in its makefiles.  It fails to link in all
X libs in the final link stage; this includes Xt, X11, Xext, SM, and
The makefile remembers to link in $(EXTRALIBS) but not $(XLIBS).  I
manually edited unix-gcc.mak to get the correct result.  

The distribution can be fixed by adding $(XLIBS) to the second last line
of unixtail.mak, at the end of the line that says:

    ./echogs -a -s - $(EXTRALIBS) -lm

so that the line becomes:

    ./echogs -a -s - $(EXTRALIBS) -lm $(XLIBS)

$(XLIBS) should be set properly in unix-gcc.mak:

XLIBS=-lX11 -lXt -lXext -lSM -lICE

Hope this is useful for any one wanting to compile ghostscript.
