The pkgsave extension is used by pkg when it has to install a file over
an existing file.  It renames the existing file with this extension then.
Pscript5Idiom should be in /usr/local/share/ghostscript/9.52/Resource/IdiomSet/
So my guess is something went wrong with the registration of the
ghostscript package during a previous upgrade.  You can just remove this
file.  Maybe you should also search your system for other pkgsave files.
