I've already uploaded them to sourceware -- they're in ~cwilson. I
checked them out -- they look okay to me. I converted them from .gz to
.bz2 to save ~1.2M on download, and I also noticed that the gs.exe
binary was not stripped.
However, when I unpacked and stripped the gs.exe, it didn't really
shrink the binary size enough to justify "re-owning" all the files in
the tarballs as "cwilson" vs. "alcocer". So, I didn't adjust that.

Since you expressed this interest, I didn't put the tarballs into
contrib/ghostscript. Go ahead and take a look yourself, and then move
'em over after.
