To compile it, you need the sources of 1.1.19 or later, but I could
mail you a precompiled binary for either Linux, Solaris, or UnixWare 7.

To install, simply copy the binary into your CUPS' lib/filter directory
(it replaces the original pstops filter; you might save the original
prior to installing the alternate one).
