Adding to this.. we rely on the png16m, png16alpha and bitcmyk devices
and these can be seen in a gs --help. Your GS needs to have those for
full print preview functionality.

GS 7.07 on some distros tries hard to support this stuff, but better
results will be had with AFPL 8.1x, and the upcoming 8.30, and GNU 8.x
when eventually released.
