This was true. However look again, if you install a newer version of
ghostscript (e.g. 2.6) and install it with platform font support then
it will usually use bitmap and cached fonts from your X11R5 font
server, rather than always rendering it's own. I've found this previews
PostScript document as fast as our dvi previewer previews DVI files.
