Not saying you are wrong, but it would be good to give a PR pointer or
description of what's wrong, and/or a quick summary of why you think no one
should want them.

I think the points are

  ghostscript-esp is superceded by ghostscript with options cups

  ghostscript6 is ancient, and ghostscript 8.70 is now GPL, so the GPL
  vs other license issue is not relevant

if those arguments are correct, then it would be reasonable to remove
them even if they weren't broken.
