I'm the MacPorts maintainer. As Masayuki says, this is building fine for
me out of the box on OS X.

However, the Postscript generated remains incompatible with the Adobe
distiller, so a2ps output can't easily be printed using lpr on OS X or
viewed in OS X's default Postscript viewer (Preview.app) making it of
limited practical use on this platform. Because of this, I'm patching
it for Macports (currently at 4.13b) as described here:


Could this patch can't be applied to a2ps at source rather than by me
downstream? Does it cause problems on other platforms?
