This version produces the same errors with pfbtops that I reported some time ago
against the previous version.  I've compiled from the source package again and
all is well:

#> foreach f ( /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/*.pfb )
#>   ./src/utils/pfbtops/pfbtops.exe $f > /dev/null
#> end

Whereas the binary delivered with the package fails:

#> foreach f ( /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/*.pfb )
#>   pfbtops $f > /dev/null
#> end
#pfbtops: first byte of packet not 0x80
#pfbtops: first byte of packet not 0x80

I've configured the build with

#> ./configure --with-x --with-gnu-ld --with-libiconv-prefix --prefix=/usr

I'm not really sure what is different between the two builds, but it may have
something to do with wide char support.
