you are correct,  
the problem seems to be a faulty instalation of gutenprint.  I am attempting 
to fix it.   I have just discovered  that libraries  have to be purged  before 
re-installation.   I have made these discoveries:-

----------------------------running configure --with-ghostscript 
configure: error: Cannot find ijs-config; please ensure Ghostscript 6.53 or 
above is installed

----------------------------running configure  (ghostsctipt not specified)
checking for ijs-config... no
checking whether to build Ghostscript driver... no

AND a dummy install in the home directory  
----------------------------running configure  with --enable-user-install (for 
the gimp-plugin)

practically none of the executible files/installedPrograms  listed 
( ) 
were obtaind  except:-

----------a single executible file (~bin/escputil)
----------nothing in  ~lib/gutenprint/5.2/modules

ideas anyone?
