Last time I checked, the Ghostscript fonts are not valid Type 1 fonts,
but derivatives that require a Postscript interpreter to be running
(I guess it's why they chose a different extension :-).

We may support _some_ of them by changing a few things in the Type 1
font driver (e.g. supporting the "-!" construct that encodes
charstrings in ASCII hexa, apparently) but right now, my priority
is elsewhere..

Note also that some ".gsf" fonts cannot be supported directly (like
the one that define an "oblique" or "bold" version of another .gsf
font through Postscript magic)..
