First off, questions regarding Cygwin and X11 should go to the
cygwin-xfree list. Please move further discussions onto that list. I'm
directing this reply there as well, and setting Reply-To: appropriately.
Secondly, this is a common problem. Simply install the "ghostscript-x11"
P.S. CGF: should we create a "cygwin-x" alias for the cygwin-xfree list,
now that cygwin is using X.Org instead of XFree86?
