I've sent a pull request that updates GUB's Ghostscript to 9.21.

However, on FreeBSD 32 bit, both Ghostscript 9.20 and 9.21 crash.
So only for FreeBSD 32 bit, Ghostscript 9.15 is used.

Linux 64 bit, Linux 32 bit, Linux PPC, FreeBSD 64 bit,
and Windows are no problem.

In my humble opinion, after or before releasing 2.20,
it is better to discontinue some platforms' binary release.
