Re: [Pkg-fonts-devel] [debian-devel:18177] Re: MBF: fonts-*-gothic: fonts-japanese-* is not registered as virtual package

First, sorry, I had misunderstood. Current Debian's pTeX does not use
fontname directly. This uses font aliases like Ryumin/GothicBBB.

Thus only the CJK support of ghostscript is the matter.

Yes. I know it's tough, difficult task. 
Thanks for your great work and I want to help as far as possible.
