pstoraster: Unable to convert file

to summarize my problem. I am writing
a driver and ppd file for my printer.
I was using the pstoraster filter, it
was working fine. I made a change in my
ppd file and now pstoraster won't work
any more that is, nothing gets printed.
I have this line in my ppd file:
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-pstoraster 10 mydriver"
looking in /var/log/cups/error_log:
print_job: auto-typing file...
print_job: request file type is image/x-bitmap.
Unable to convert file 0 to printable format for job 199!
Hint: Do you have ESP Ghostscript installed?
CancelJob: id = 199
Can someone tell me where and what is 'print_job'?
And why does print_job not think I have ESP gs
installed? Especially when I do have it installed:
> /usr/bin/gs --help
ESP Ghostscript 7.07.1 (2003-07-12)
It almost seems like there is another ghostscript installed
on my system and the wrong one is getting invoked.
obviously, changing the ppd file couldn't be the problem.
I update my Gentoo system every couple of weeks so maybe
something that affects cups got changed.
by the way if I invoke
it does produce a postscript file.
