 I think I found the problem:
 I installed the fonts locally with type1inst and I got this error message:
 bash-2.05b$ type1inst
 type1inst Version 0.6.1 (11th February 1998)
 Copyright (C) 1996-1998 James Macnicol (james.macnicol at mailexcite.com)
 There are a total of 35 PostScript fonts in this directory
 35 fonts found
 35 were standard PostScript fonts
 While reading the existing Fontmap file I saw 49 entries
 which mentioned a filename which now does not exist.  Most likely
 you removed or renamed the file.  I ignored these entries.
 There were 315 lines in Fontmap which I couldn't understand
 These were ignored.
 Part of those 49 entries that got dropped are the aliases for the fonts 
 Helvetica, Times and Courier. In the type1inst.log I see:
 Couldn't understand line :
   % Aliases
   <SNIP -- irrelevant lines removed>
 Couldn't understand line :
   /Times-Roman                  /NimbusRomNo9L-Regu     ;
 Couldn't understand line :
   /Times-Italic                 /NimbusRomNo9L-ReguItal ;
 Couldn't understand line :
   /Times-Bold                   /NimbusRomNo9L-Medi     ;
 Couldn't understand line :
   /Times-BoldItalic             /NimbusRomNo9L-MediItal ;
 <SNIP -- irrelevant lines removed>
  So I looked at the original Fontmap and see that it has not changed in years:
 bash-2.05b$ ll Fontmap
 -rw-r--r--  1 bsd  bsd  - 13604 Oct 30  1997 Fontmap
 So something is wrong with type1inst (which IIRC) is a PERL script or 
 something is wrong with the ghostscript-gnu port?
  This would never be noticed on the ports install because the port invokes 
 type1inst with no logging of errors and it prints out no errors, while it is 
 		Kind regards,
