Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Sorry for this contradiction and thanks for reopening. We need to
 investigate what exactly is lost if a2ps and enscript are removed from the
 book and the reader doesn't install packages beyond BLFS, e.g.:

 "Mousepad from XFCE-4.4 beta will not be able to print, bug already filed,
 see http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=783"

 KDE lists Enscript as an optional dependency, but I don't know how to
 trigger its use.

 As for the syntax highlighting, try this:

 {{{
 LC_ALL=C a2ps -o test.ps --columns=1 -R -M A4 -E -g --ppd=level2 some-
 file.c
 }}}

 LC_ALL=C is needed to get the date correct.
