Yes, I agree.

Hmm, I think I'd rather just include the docs ghostscript-base,
to be installed in /usr/share/man.  That way, the manual pages
a tied to the required base package and not to the binary package.

I don't know if X apps usually have their man pages installed in
/usr/share/man, /usr/X11R6/share/man or /usr/X11R6/man.
