I've had similar symptoms under QNX and BeOS as well; QNX runs on Intel

runs on PowerPC boxes, is nearly POSIX 1003.1, and features Metrowerks
C++ as a compiler.

Links to sources for the PostScript utilities and other things mentioned
in the document would also be great; it'll save people some time with
Yahoo! or a search engine.
