Did you read the INSTALL file?

BUGS
----
    * Well Tempered Screening (WTS) works with ghostscript 8.54-8.60+.
      So if you want BEST COLORS, you'll have to install gs 8.54 or
      better if you don't have it.

        $ gs --version
        8.15.2

        $ wget "http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/ghost/GPL/gs860/ghostscript-8.60.tar.gz";
        $ tar zxf ghostscript-8.60.tar.gz
        $ cd ghostscript-8.60
        $ ./autogen.sh
        $ make
        $ su                            OR $ sudo cp bin/gs /usr/bin/gs.foo
        # cp bin/gs /usr/bin/gs.foo
