GPL Ghostscript 8.57

We've released Ghostscrpt 8.57. This one came much sooner than usual after the previous release, but still not as long as we wanted.

The good news is that having drawn a line under recent work, we're now merging the CUPS support and various distro patches from the ESP Ghostscript fork. Thanks to Till Kamppeter, who has been sorting the patches. This is the next step, after moving to a GPL development tree, toward shipping a single, up-to-date version of Ghostscript in linux distributions.
