gs v8.51 segfaults and info

There was a change between gs 8.50 and 8.51 which breaks
usages with epsonepl.

The fix is already committed to gs, and will be integrated to
gs 8.53 (?the next release) when it is released.

That means, out of the recent gs 8.x releases, only 8.15
and 8.50 works unmodified (8.00 and 8.14 needs one
patch, 8.51 needs a different patch).

hpijs people recommends, and is shipped by Debian for a while.

Been very over-due. Last summer we say we would

(and we have since added 6200L).
