 Ghostscript just will not compile.

Hey,

I build it just a few hours ago using a good how-to "How to build
Ghostscript from source code". See the following URL:
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/aladdin/doc/Make.htm

Quick install: cd to unpacked gs.
get following sources, I think that lfs people already have them by now:
JPEG     ftp://ftp.uu.net/graphics/jpeg/jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz
PNG   ftp://swrinde.nde.swri.edu/pub/png/src/libpng-#.#.#.tar.gz
zlib (latest)   ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/infozip/zlib/zlib.tar.gz
Unpack them in:
/usr/src/gs6.01
and rename to:
JPEG   ./jpeg-6b   ./jpeg 
PNG   ./libpng-#.##   ./libpng 
zlib   ./zlib-#.#.#   ./zlib

now ls -all should give:
bash-2.04# ls -all
total 84

cd src
vi unix-gcc.mak and configure it a bit, CFLAGS for example
cd ..
make -f src/unix-gcc.mak
make -f src/unix-gcc.mak install
