The download file is created by the program BuildFoundries which used to be 
left in the font/devpdf/util directory after install, no longer. Perhaps this 
ought to be installed in the bin directory during install. If the ghostscript 
version changes then you could cd into the the font/devpdf directory and run 
BuildFoundries. One caveat, the program will need tweaking to preserve any 
custom changes made to the download file which have nothing to do with the 
location of the ghostscript or URW fonts.
