one so there's nothing left to cause it to be installed any more.)

The a2ps maintainer is David Hudson, who has AFAICS not been heard from on these lists since October 2005. In the meantime, besides this release depending on an ancient libintl2, there is a new version 4.14 available upstream.


I have tried compiling 4.14. Here is the last few lines of the make output, with line numbers to compensate for line-breaks:
