>From what I can tell, the only problem with pbkl.gsf+gsftopk+xdvi that does not
also occur with pbkl.gsf+dvips+gs is that certain characters are reduced to
small dots (or empty).  This does not occur in gs 2.6.1 (more precisely,
with gsfonts-2.6.1); the difference seems to be that the definition, e.g.,
of /endash changed from

	/endash 21 -! 10bf317005b6d52e1aa2bdbf46ffb661693922e818 |-


	/endash{(--) Private/compose get exec} |-

In this case Private/compose seems to interfere with charpath + pathbbox
used in gsftopk.  I'll try to come up with a workaround soon.
