well, thanks very much, Tim.  You and Phil Ost tested, and I found out that our
FreeBSD-ports installed gs seems to have some sickness, when being asked to
display PS files that don't have embedded fonts ... because that's what this is.
 I'll be investigating it further.  I  have already verified that at least some
of the Linux-derived gs ports display this fine, so it's a ports problem of some
kind, because of the testing, and I know my gs and gs fonts are installed the
way they should be.
