Since 'gv' requires 'ghostscript-x11', any particular reason for it to not
be installed? I understand the PATH issues, and
/etc/profile.d/00xorg-x11-base.sh *SHOULD* be fixed to move /usr/X11R6/bin
to the front of the PATH (or, at any rate, before /usr/bin), but comments
like "gv doesn't work, so install ghostscript-x11" make me think that
setup is somehow failing in its dependency tracking. Alternatively, why
not make 'gv' invoke '/usr/X11R6/bin/gs' explicitly, instead of searching
for it in the PATH?
