Thanks, but this is unlikely to be a very helpful approach for files
built as part of distribution-managed packages, where the shipped files
are normally expected to be immutable (for example, checksumming the
installed files would fail after doing that kind of thing).

It would be preferable to make the download file independent of the
ghostscript version, if possible.  If that isn't possible, I'll need to
figure out some way to annotate the implied dependency in my packages'
metadata, in order that we can know when we need to rebuild groff.
