Went through most of the patch, although it mostly looks fine, the patch does
way too much from my S/W dev PoV, seperate concerns need to be addressed

1. Add dynamic linking
2. Flavorize port
3. Clean up ghostscript.mk, everything before 9 should be removed
4. Clean up ports not to use a specific version directly:
> ./graphics/graphviz/Makefile:GHOSTSCRIPT_LIB_DEPENDS=   libgs.so:print/${_GS_PORT}
Uses an implementation detail which is not acceptable, should be
> ./graphics/inkscape/Makefile:           ps2pdf:print/ghostscript9-agpl-base \
> ./graphics/xfig/Makefile:LIB_DEPENDS=   libgs.so:print/ghostscript9-agpl-base \
5. Adapt patch on top of cleaned up ghostscript.mk to integrate flavors of 10
AND request an exp-run for 10 to see whether there are fallouts just to make

So this makes five patches here which gives us much more control of this
important change.

@dizzy Do you want me or Chad provide patch for 4 or do you want me to do this

I will go on with these based on Chad's patch.
