Why not use the fonts that comes with gs 4.xx and 5.xx?

Symlink the *.pfb and *.afm into a directory like
/usr/lib/X11/fonts/urw, create a fonts.alias and fonts.dir file and
add this directory to your fontpath.  Make sure, that the bitmap fonts
are left unscaled (using the :unscaled word after a directory) and put
the new directory at the end.

Email me for more details.


I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
