Dear R-SIG-MAC developers,

I recently observed a NOTE on several MaxOS X package checks on CRAN:

sh: line 1: gs: command not found
!!! Error: Closing Ghostscript (exit status: 127)!
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: thumbpdf exited with bad status, quitting.

See for details:




The check is related to vignette building, does anybody know what's 
wrong here?

Thanks a lot

Thomas Petzoldt
