Hi Ingo,

I've tracked down the problem. The configure flag --with-urw-fonts-dir was not 
being used when searching for fonts for the default foundry, just when 
searching for the U foundry. This is why the U- fonts were correctly populated 
but some of the default fonts errored. The ones which errored were the ones 
which were not part of the pdf base fonts, i.e. you can't use them without the 
font being included in the pdf.

I have also included /usr/local/share/fonts/ghostscript as one of the static 
paths to search. As I discover different places that systems place the fonts I 
add them to the list. So you shouldn't need the --with-urw-fonts-dir flag any 

Please let me know if this fixes the problem. I noticed that you have 
ghostscript 9.55 on your system, please could you do:-

ls /usr/local/share/ghostscript/9.55.0/Resource/Init /usr/local/share/
ghostscript/9.55.0/lib /usr/local/share/ghostscript/9.55.0/Resource/Font /usr/
local/share/ghostscript/fonts /usr/local/share/fonts. 

And send me the results. Sometimes they subtly change the names of the fonts 
which ghostscript uses and I have to add the alternative names. If you can't 
find the fonts it can mean they have baked the fonts in what they call %rom% 
so they are not available as real files.
