BTW, I've always "gone through the front door" in my own code, using (through pipes) the ghostscript executable rather than linking to its library.

I was wondering aloud what functionality this eps2write component could have, with the underlying question how many ports rely on it.
But that's all moot if there are other ABI incompatibilities elsewhere in the newer ghostscript versions.

If it's already dropped after only a short period of existence, can you not simply remove it from the (default) build? Last time I built ghostscript, it was designed to allow that kind of thing (I recall I usually had to activate a number of components, in fact).
