I do not see this behavior. Everything works properly for me without
any additional link. Here is a snippet from a logfile of running gs
under strace:

open("gs_init.ps", O_RDONLY)            = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("./gs_init.ps", O_RDONLY)          = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/randy/.fonts/gs_init.ps", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/ghostscript/8.15/lib/gs_init.ps", O_RDONLY) = 3

And another snippet from the output of 'gs --help':

randy at rmlinux: ~ > gs --help
ESP Ghostscript 8.15.2 (2006-04-19)
...
Search path:
   . : /usr/share/ghostscript/8.15/lib :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/8.15/Resource : /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts :
   /usr/share/fonts/default/ghostscript : /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1 :
   /usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType : /usr/lib/DPS/outline/base :
   /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/Type1 : /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType



Can you provide the "Search path" when you run gs --help?
