If appropriate, please include Droid Sans Fallback, as that font is 
needed by recent releases of Ghostscript.

If not appropriate please tell me, so that I can arrange for having that 
font packaged separately (and preferrably have that done before next 
packaging release of Ghostscript which is overdue).

I sure hope I do not confuse even further with this remark :-)
