It sort of seems too, but have you confirmed that when building with gs
not visible, it doesn't try to use it, and the package really builds ok?

If you are wanting to commit this now best to ask jperkin explicitly.

If you are just proposing to fix up the -ghostscript option to avoid gs
harder, and not proposing to change the default (i.e., the patch you
sent), seems ok to me.  (Changing defaults is a much bigger deal.)
