Well, as far as I know there isn't a ljet5 driver for
ghostscript: (from the gs-3.53 devs.mak file)
# *     lj250   DEC LJ250 Companion color printer
# +     ljet2p  H-P LaserJet IId/IIp/III* with TIFF compression
# +     ljet3   H-P LaserJet III* with Delta Row compression
# +     ljet3d  H-P LaserJet IIID with duplex capability
# +     ljet4   H-P LaserJet 4 (defaults to 600 dpi)
# +     lj4dith  H-P LaserJet 4 with Floyd-Steinberg dithering
# +     ljetplus  H-P LaserJet Plus
# *     lp2563  H-P 2563B line printer

So that looks like you're out of luck. You could try to use
gs -sDEVICE=ljet4 -r600x600
maybe that works (I guess not, but it's worth the try).

BTW, kids, don't try executing "gs -r600x600" in Xwindows: that
made my 24M ram +60M swap system swap for about 15 min, untill I
killed gs, after whitch it continued swapping for about 10 min.
Now it's back to normal again.

output of "top" afterwords -- using 49M swap for 2 emacs sessions and
4 xterms?

Well, the list is OK, but I guess we're not able to provide you with
a satisfying answer.
