Sorry, but I don't think that would be a good idea.  We've just
reached 0 Critical bugs again, so I'll be making a new Release
Candidate (Carl: I can handle the backporting, probably, enjoy
your vacation).  This is not the right time to switch a bunch of
build requirements.  Remember that 2.14.0 is drastically late and
the delay has caused huge problems.

I think the best thing is to get 2.14.0 out now, include a warning
that it doesn't work on windows 7 SP1 but that we're testing a fix
and hope to have a new version out soon.  Then we switch to
ghostscript-9.0 in 2.15.0 and start testing.
