Same here.

Did ImageMagick @6.9.8-3_0+x11 work for you after downgrading 
ghostscript?  I downgraded both just to be sure, but will reactivate 
ImageMagick @6.9.8-3_0+x11 if it's working.

This causes clips upgrade to fail (because it wants to use ps2pdf on a couple of its documentation files).  It also seems to cause a problem with ImageMagick, as reported by the check of binaries for linking errors.
