running gs was trivial, but pdfsizeopt? where do I get that *easily*.

Seems that Google's own instructions are out of date or don't work
(error 404 links) and there are a ton of other files that I need to
download (or check that I have) to make sure all the dependencies are
met for pdfsizeopt.

I've already spent 25 minutes trying to find out how to get this python
script to run and haven't yet.

Hardly 'trivial'.

It passes make, make check and a full make doc, but is a there another
way to test this with something I don't have to dance through hoops to run?
