Follow-up Comment #2, bug #41140 (project octave):

I think I could even system("gs") with no problem

That is true as long as C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.07\bin is in Window's search
PATH. After all, system(<COMMAND>) simply invokes Window's own program
launcher that can very well cope with spaces in path names.

IIRC JWE pointed out that building ghostscript in MXE isn't quite
straightforward. So we'll have to live with this for Windows systems until a
fix comes along.
(AFAIR there were also other programs that were troublesome in MXE - fig2dev
or pstoedit?)
