Aladdin releases the latest ghostscript under a license which is less
free than GPL.  You can find 6.01 in woody under the name gs-aladdin.  

At the time of a new release, the previous version is re-released under
the GNU license.  Version 5.50 is the latest GNU version, but that has
not yet been packaged for Debian.
