You may obtain ghostscript from
There are precompiled versions for the mac, but they
are heavily outdated (7.07 vs. 8.64). All is purely C,
no system calls needed other than file input/output
(you may ignore the X interface), and the OS disc of every
mac contains a gcc variant for the mac (I use it routinely).
So I recommend strongly compiling ghostscript for yourself.
