To be specific,


are temporarily not available. But


are certainly available on CTAN and via the standard web pages.

Changing topics, let me confirm that both MacTeX and i-Installer  
install two versions of gs,
one with X11 support and one without, and make gs a link to the  
appropriate version
at the end of installation, depending on whether or not the user has  
installed Apple's
X11 package.

Changing topics yet again (and maybe I'll get in trouble for that):  
MacTeX has simpdftex and also
a modified version of this script by Jin-Hwan Cho called  
simpdftex_dpmx. The modified version
can be used to call dvipdfmx instead of dvips + ps2pdf during  

My email was out of kilter a couple of days ago, and I didn't see  
Cho's message
to the list. Maybe I'll just repeat what he said. If you change  
"simpdftex latex --maxpfb" to
"simpdftex_dpmx latex --maxpfb" in Preferences for various front  
ends, nothing will
change because the old script is a subset of the new one. But if you  
add the flag
"--dpx", then DVIPDFMx will be used, and if you add the flag "--dpm"  
then DVIPDFM will
be used. So, just to be clear

	simpdftex latex --maxpfb    -->    simpdftex_dpmx  latex  --dpx  -- 

will use DVIPDFMX instead of dvips _ ps2pdf.
