  * milestone:  future => 6.3


 Enscript is referenced by ImageMagick as a dependency.

 Not sure exactly what it does, but it does look for the enscript
 binary during configure. Typically, this means that ImageMagick
 will use it to do some bizarre conversion.

 Not sure if paps provides an equivalent binary. If it does not,
 then I suppose we need to leave enscript in the book as it still
 builds properly, and works as expected (see aalib discussions).

 It would be nice if someone could provide input about he a2ps
 package so we can close this bug.
