GSview uses netscape to browse through the online help. BLFS does not install Netscape, but has other browsers from which to choose. You can create a symlink from your preferred browser to /usr/bin/netscape, or simply edit srcunx/gvxreg.c using the following sed script with your browser's executable file name substituted for [browser]:
sed -i s/netscape/[browser]/ srcunx/gvxreg.c
Install GSview by running the following commands:
sed 's|GSVIEW_ROOT=/usr/local|GSVIEW_ROOT=/usr|' \ srcunx/unx.mak > Makefile && patch -Np1 -i ../gsview-4.6-pstotext-1.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../gsview-4.6-lang-1.patch && make && make install
sed 's|GSVIEW_ROOT=/usr/local|GSVIEW_ROOT=/usr|': This command changes the default installation directory to /usr.
The GSview package contains epstool, gsview and gsview-help.
