visible, even for a2ps --version.

Try installing libintl2. a2ps.exe depends on that very old version but doesn't mention it explicitly in its setup.hint dependencies. (Probably it used to get pulled in by default anyway by some other package but now the last other thing that used to use v2 of libintl has been updated to a more recent one so there's nothing left to cause it to be installed any more.)
