  对啊,TurboLinux 中文版的 Ghostscript 5.10-8,就是经过陈向阳先生
加进去的中文 patch,配合已有的日文和韩文 patch,和 VFlib 一起来
利用 TrueType 字体作 CJK 打印的了。我下载了 patch 回来,只是我看不懂。
:-)  另外,据说 Ghostscript 6.x 已有直接对 TrueType 字体的支持,
不过我还没有时间详细看,也不知对中文 TTF 的支持如何。

  也许将来 Debian 的中文打印也可以及应该朝这个方向走。目前折衷的办法,
就是用 bg5ps 1.3.0。经 CLE 的小虫 (Platin) 兄修改, bg5ps 1.3.0 可以
处理 Big5 及 GB2312 的文件,配合文鼎 PL 字体,打印效果不错。
^_^  bg5ps-1.3.0 已放在 woody 中了。
