Do you mean the ghostscript executable, or the libraries that PHP  
would need to access?

Which operating system? There are subtle differences between UNIX- 
like flavors.

In general, Apache will have the executable PATH available as set by  
its calling shell.  If you want to add to that (for instance to point  
to the ghostscript installation path) you can set


in the script that starts Apache.

If you need access to the libraries, there are several ways.  By  
default, your OS will search a standard set of directories for shared  
libraries (like /usr/lib, perhaps /usr/local/lib). You can add to  
that collection in an OS specific way (see and ldconfig(8)),  
or set and export the variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the shell that  
starts Apache.

Hope that helps you on your way.
