Which test? 

The test that Mike has shown draws a plot in interactive windows but not
into a file.
So  ghostscript is irrelevant to the test and it cannot be the bottleneck.

The ghostscript is used to create png file from the postscript file on the
open GL based 
graphics toolkit (qt and fltk) . And it also is used on gnuplot graphics
toolkit if gnuplot 
used does not have cairo based terminals.
The gnuplot bundled  with octave 3.8 or later does not have cairo based

So I use gnuplot for windows from gnuplot official site setting
gnuplot_binary in ~/.octaverc.
