That should be OK, then. (I was a bit puzzled about the "...

I think your main problem is that the ghostscript package itself is
missing, which contains /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster on Lenny.

Two more (minor) things:

- I think it would be better to upgrade the cups* and libcups2 packages
  to their current Lenny versions (1.3.8-1+lenny6). Likewise, the
  gostscript*, gs-common, and libgs8 packages should be at version

- The cupsys* and libcupsys2 packages are dummy packages on Lenny, whose
  only pupose is to ease the transition to cups*/libcups2. It should be
  safe to remove the dummy packages if you care about having a cleaner
  system with less cruft.
