Dear All,

I have now trouble in installing ghostscript-9.53.3_1 on mac OS Big Sur. I have found the following error messages in the log:

:msg:archivefetch --->  Attempting to fetch ghostscript-9.53.3_1+x11.darwin_20.x86_64.tbz2 from https://kmq.jp.packages.macports.org/ghostscript
:debug:archivefetch Fetching archive failed: The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

Actually the above web site does not exist. Do you have any ideas to fix this bug ?

Based on your report, there's nothing to fix so far. Packages are not available for ghostscript because we are not legally allowed to provide them:

"ghostscript" is not distributable because its license "agpl" conflicts with license "GPL-2" of dependency "libpaper"

In that case, ghostscript will build from source. If that is failing, reopen the ticket and attach the main.log so that we can see why it failed.
