If you'd read my mail thoroughly (and perhaps thought a little bit), it
should be clear that to install the fonts you just needed to unpack them
to /usr/share/ghostscript (not /usr/share/ghostscript/8.00, because
other gs-enabled applications should be able to use them, too).

That's life. Don't cry and get along with it ;-)
