    gnu: ghostscript: Do not build the statically-linked 'gs' binary.
    * gnu/packages/ghostscript.scm (ghostscript)[arguments]: Remove
    'build-so' and 'install-so' phases.  Replace 'build' and 'install'

removes "gs" from the ghostscript package. However, this is the usual program
that people expect. For instance, unison uses it for building its
documentation. Is there a dynamically linked binary which replaces gs?
If yes, should we add a symbolic link?

If not, I would suggest to revert this commit.

Ceterum censeo that we should not optimise for size by sacrificing
functionality and ease of handling (cf. separate outputs).
