If you want to, and that could confirm the failures. You probably
want to ensure that you have GLib-2.12.11 installed as well, as
that is what the book will have in just a few minutes.

I'd bet it doesn't matter, the tests just seem to use gs for pixel
arrangement and numbers (formatting). 'gs' is not used for actual
rendering on an X window. I always install ESPGS as it provides
CUPS support and seems to be better maintained.
