In the current ghostscript distribution (8.50) it is missing the library
libijs.a, which is part of the standard ghostscript distribution.
Such library is required for building the IJS GUTENPRINT
plug-in (ijsgutenprint). This program is needed to use the IJS drive of
I have found that in ghostscript-8.53 the library is not made because
the configure tries to link the library with ijs_exec_win.lo instead of
ijs_exec_unix.lo. After correcting by hand the .../ijs/Makefile the
libijs was made correctly.
With the gutenprint IJS plug-in you can use most of the modern printers.
The cygwin istallation of gutenprint has some troubles that I will
explain in a different message.
