Just to keep people from wasting their time to fix this: My local 
gs-common edition has the following changes: 

  * debian/control: Add dependency on gsfonts. Rationale: gs is quite
    useless to most people without the fonts and in comparison to the
    gs package they are not really that big. If you really don't want 
    them to be installed, please use the equivs package to tell dpkg 
    that a missing gsfonts package is okay.
    + libdb2 should build with this change as it was only missing the
      gsfonts build dependency (closes: #126475)
    + Follows the request by Tim Hull to pull gsfonts with gs
      (closes: #65594)
  * Acknowledge the NMU by LaMont Jones (closes: #133902).
  * debian/control: Clean up some obsolete stuff:
    + Does not conflict with gs_x, gs_svga, gs_both anymore. Those 
      packages are long gone now and the package names violate policy
      (closes: #137430).
  * scripts/*: Copy those scripts from the gs source package instead of
    gs-aladdin as we want gs-common in main (closes: #141206).
  * scripts/dvipdf: Add from the gs source (closes: #117442).
  * man/*: Copy from gs source.
  * debian/links: Install symlinks for the manpages of ps2pdf1[234] 
    which are documented in the ps2pdf manpage.
  * debian/rules: Run dh_installmanpages to get the stuff those 
    installed (closes: #116144).
  * debian/copyright: Add (lintian).

There are only a few minor things I want to sort out before uploading 
and I guess this is my last chance to fix something :) Basically I
want to get rid of the debconf support in gs-common since the only 
question asked does not make any sense to me (was brought in by the 
defoma patch by Yasuhiro Take) and therefore I am going to eliminate 

That question selects if you want defoma to substitute unavailable 
printer fonts when displaying Postscript files. I am going to turn 
that off for now. I don't think we really need it for woody.
