I see nothing bad, so please mail the tar file.

Another couple of tests, to narrow down the problem:

Make or download any jpeg or tiff file (maybe other graphics formats will do) 
and try printing it with lpr. CUPS does not use ghostscript when printing 

lpr -o ppi=100 -o position=top gnu-head.jpg
lpr test.tiff

If that does work, you have a broken installation of ghostscript. If it 
doesn't, print some text as a raw file:

echo -en 'Testing text\r\n\f' | lpr -oraw
