Re: Ghostscript seems to be broken on OS X

Am I somehow missing a Times-Bold font?

I posted about this a couple months ago on pkgsrc-users but didn't get 
anywhere. Can anyone reproduce the problem?

Any help would be great.


Seems like NimbusRomNo9L-Regu font is missing.

I tried ghostscript-agpl-9.07nb4 on 10.8.4, but couldn't reproduce the problem. 
But I don't use X11 at all, so maybe that's the issue here.
Could you, please, try "ps2pdf" and see if that produces a valid PDF?

Kind regards,

Here's ps2pdf...

It happens whether calling on X or not. Interestingly - if I open the same file on a NetBSD-6 machine, same version of gs, displaying on my Mac's X11 Server, it works fine, no errors.
