 This version works well, specifically 'make && make so && make install
 soinstall' - works fine with cups-1.3 (no idea about older cups).
 Therefore, we could drop ESPGS.

 This, or at least an 8.6x version, is needed by libspectre which is a
 dependency for okular in kde4.

 Patch in -patches to compile agaisnt system libjasper, needs 'rm -r
 jasper'.  It now uses system libraries (if found) automatically for the
 other included libs (zlib, libpng, jpeglib).
