I think it's too late to do it inside ghostscript, it would have to go
in perl-modules.

Not sure if the case where perl-base is upgraded first and perl-modules
lacks behind is just theoretical, but it would create the same effect.
It would mean we'd need the hack in perl-base too.

I'm obviously not thrilled by this ugliness, but it's doable.

Thomas, thanks for driving this.
