I have recompiled my 68k AFPL Ghostscript 8.13 port to i686-AROS. Outside of the viewers everything appears to be functioning, and within the viewers just the truecolour WB viewer for PS and PDF is functioning. revisit http://www.whoosh777.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk This port was done using my recent port to 68k host of the x86-AROS gcc-3.3.1, so the one port was used to port the other port.

Of the 6 viewer options just the most useful one functions!

With the truecolour WB viewer the colours and image are completely correct, and the viewer is very responsive.

Possibly the other viewers dont function because of endianess, so I will look into this possibility,

The 5 non functioning viewers just produce either an empty window or a window with correct image but wrong colours.

As Turboprint hasnt been ported to x86-AROS, the Turboprint devices cannot currently be used but are compiled in,

The port is a very clean port, the few hitches which occured were quite painless. There were no missing API calls at the linker stage,

I will next be attempting ports of AFPL Ghostscript 8.13 to other AmigaOS variants,

:these other ports will be attempted first before trying to fix the 5 non functioning viewers of this port.

The port takes 3.5 hours to build on WinUAE and the resulting binary is 3.2mb,
