Follow-up Comment #45, bug #63808 (project groff):

[comment #44 comment #44:]
> I would be very interested in receiving a copy of the gs executable from
Solaris, even though it is over 9 years out of date.

Sure, why not?  It's under the GPL.  Since this is for forensic purposes, I
trust I will be excused from my obligation to provide complete corresponding
source code for this executable.  I don't even know if it exists on the host. 
If it doesn't, then Oracle has the responsibility under the GPL to provide
such source code to any third party.


That out of the way, the gs executable is only 10 kB, which seems shockingly
lean even if it didn't embed _any_ fonts.  I guess it dlopen()s some stuff?

> There is a slim chance I may be able to extract the fonts and put them in
devpdf directory. Worth a look.

Oooh, sneaky.  3:)

> Now the pressure is off for rc3, I hope you can do a proper ghostscript only
test on your debian system and report the results.

I'll return to this, but for the moment I have other fires to put out (that I
set for myself, sadly).
