In GhostScript 8.70, gs_init.ps is moved from lib/ to 
Resource/Init/, but gs870w32.exe doesn't seem to have files in
the directory Resource/ certainly. I don't know whether the 
files in the directory are needed on Win32.

If your gs binary works correctly without setting the 
environment variable GS_LIB, you may ignore the warning 
message above.

If not, add the following line to your pstoimg script by hand:

 $ENV{GS_LIB} = 'gs_lib_paths';

where gs_lib_paths is the ghostscript library directories
separated by ';'. For example, 

 $ENV{GS_LIB} = 'C:/gs/gs8.70/lib;C:/gs/gs8.70/Resource/Init';
