This seems to be the same problem as reported at:


The problem may occur by incorrect configuration of Netpbm. You 
may fix the problem by each of the followings:

a) to reinstall Netpbm with correct configuration 
  (modify RGB_DB3 setting to the correct search path, e.g. 
  "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/rgb.txt" in your pm_config.h before the 
b) to set RGBDEF environment variable. For example:
  $ export RGBDEF=/usr/X11R&/lib/X11/rgb.txt
c) not to use color name. Modify the color name 'gray85' in 
  pstoimg.pin (bin/pstoimg) to the RGB style value '#d9d9d9'.
