Hallo -

I just tried to install Fink. After some updating of Fink itself, I  
found pdftk 1.4 on the package-list. I hitted install (from sources)  
and after an hour or so, I decided to terminate the process. And  
started it again, this time with ghostscript6 ...

I Fink meant to take care of all dependencies? Is it enough just to  

fink install pdftk

and wait for some hours?

Thanks -
