Looks like we need app-text/ghostscript-gpl, which is a bit unfortunate since that's a lot of depends.

It turns out that it also requires certain fonts to be installed, otherwise the build fails. It requires Courier Oblique and I'm not sure which package ships that

Dear treecleaner@:

I'm still able to reproduce this issue right now.

Since it has not been fixed for a long time, I'd suggest to evaluate if it is the case to remove this package from the tree. Thanks
