I tend to agree after looking further. Since the author uses 999
as the max version and 99999 is simply the same thing expanded out
to accomodate the new internal versioning scheme of EPS Ghostscript,
I see no reason to hard code 99999 into GSView.

I'm going to update GSView to 4.8, add the change for the EPS
version and also reflect that is not a build-time
requirement, only run-time. Since the existing patch applies
without issue, I'll continue to use that as well.

Thanks for the input, Bruce and Dan.
