Thanks to the mail list. I received 24 replies in less than a day! My
original question:

The references that were provided were: (Ghostscript WWW page)

I found Thomas Merz's manual to be the most useful. There is a link to it in

I was able to compile and link it. The problem I am now having is I am
trying to add support for an Epson Stylus Color 800. I assume that the
st800 or stcolor driver should work with that printer. When I tried to build
it again, after adding st800 and stcolor in DEVICE_DEVS6), I got the
following error:

make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target `st800'

When I read some more documentation, I noticed those drivers are not
available on Unix. I welcome any ideas you might have. If I figure
out what to do (besides buy another printer) I will post a follow-up.

Again, thanks to all that replied for your help.
