[Rd] fedora core 2 + bitmap() + ghostscript (PR#7062)

Hi all,

        A bug popped up recently when I upgraded to fedora core 2 (from core 1). Whenever I used the bitmap() function, ghostscript complained that it couldn't handle png or tiff devices. This was NOT a bug with R. It was with the version of ghostscript shipped with core 2. Going to rawhide and getting ghostscript 7.07-29 (core 2 comes with 7.07-25) solved this problem.

Unfortunately, I have no output to demonstrate this problem as I FINALLY managed to fix it, and there's no way I going back :)

Thanks Piers
