Ghost Script on JuliaBinaryWrappers?

I need to use convert from ImageMagick and ImageMagick_jll works mostly ok, however at some point convert tries to call gs, which is not distributed with ImageMagick_jll.

Has anyone attempted to package Ghost Script on Yggdrasil? Anything I should be aware of before I attempt? Anyone willing to “handhold” me through the process? Jumping in the binary builder docs now.

Wow, BinaryBuilder is freakin unbelievable! This is amazing! It just works!!! I am flabbergasted how easy it is to compile with these tools!!!

I wrote the post above expecting this would be an intense and difficult task that I will not finish for days so there will be time for someone to start giving pointers and tutorials and general “handholding”. In the meantime I just ran the wizard and everything seems to work.

The autotool’s configure seems to be unhappy on some systems:

The --host flags, etc, were specified as required.

In particular, crosscompilation on for Windows seems to fail. Any pointers? Many other cross compile targets run fine.

You should open a PR for Yggdrasil with this recipe and ask for guidance there.
