 OK, but even without the builtin %rom% filestore it would need
 more tricks to find your "cidfmap" etc first. The first entry
 in the search path would be ...ghostscript/8.71/Resource/Init
 then, and this still belongs to the ghostscript installation.
 Changing a file belonging to an installed pkg would be bad style
 at least (there are checksums maintained by the pkg system).
 So you'd need more options for the "ghostscript" pkg if you
 don't want to modify GS_LIB.

 agreed, but if the option had an effect which would it make usable
 also for other people wanting to customize ghostscript (and
 a self-explaining name) it would be better
