ghostscript-afpl problem

I have a little problem with my ghostscript-afpl:

I printed a section of a datasheet with acrobat7 into a gs-file. After opening
it with gv, it shows very, very little fonts (as big as dots).

Converting the datasheet with pdf2ps shows this error:

This effect appears only, when i use ghostscript-afpl or ghostscript-glp on
FreeBSD-amd64. ghostscript-gnu works properly on amd64. On my i386-FreeBSD-
installation (same hardware), all these ghostscript-distributions work without

Any tips?

Thanks in advance
