Branch: CURRENT, Version: 20060221nb1, Package name: poster-20060221nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Here you have the new release of `poster', to scale postscript
images to a larger size, and print them on larger media and/or
tile them to print on multiple sheets.
With respect to the earlier release:
- support is added for foreign (Non European A*) media sizes.
- options for scaling became more flexible
- original restrictions on white margins in your drawing are removed.
For a complete explanation see the accompanying manual.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Revert the compression feature of 20060221 (wrap the original file in
a procedure and call that N times later), as it exceeds some limits of
ghostscript as well as other printers at least for nontrivial files.

Patch by Ingvar Hagelund via Redhat Bugzilla # 436969.
