Lilypond v 2.18.2-1 is  unable to produce png and other output using 
Ghostscript on OS X El Capitan  
(x86) giving this error:

> Converting to PNG...dyld: Library not loaded: ./bin/../sobin/libgs.8.70.dylib

The problem seems to be (I'm not a Lilypond developer, so 
I don't know the ins and outs) that 
Lilypond depends on setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to 
before executing Ghostscript.

OS X El Capitan restricts applications from setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH as a 
security precaution:


what worked as a fix for me was symlinking lib to sobin 
in the Resources directory.

I was unable to test on v.2.19.27 because of a hang in 
Building font database.  

Thank you. Michael
