X11 alpha wouldn't be acceptable as a viewer application even if it did print
these file correctly, it is more a developer/debugging tool, it doesn't do
anything other than display files.  There are other programs that are
ghostscript based viewers with usual viewer features, for example
http://www.ghostscript.com/GSview.html.  

That said, we would like x11alpha to work better than it does but would much
rather have an outside consultant with X11 expertise do the work.  If you know
somebody who knows X11 graphics programming we'd be happy to give them a
consulting contract.  Without that I'm not sure when x11alpha issues will
bubble to the top of the priority list.  We have considered disabling the
device until the situation improves.
