That'll be because you didn't have a new enough gs installed before
upgrading:

Package: gsfonts
Version: 6.0-2
Conflicts: gs (<< 5.50-5), gs-aladdin (<< 6.50-4)

Package: gs
Version: 6.51-2

Package: gv
Depends: gs, libc6 (>= 2.2.3-7), xaw3dg (>= 1.5-6), xlibs (>> 4.1.0)

I don't know why apt decided to remove gs rather than upgrading it.

Sorry for this bug. The gsfonts package is too new for testing since
no acceptable gs package is available in testing. Currently gs is 
waiting for a libgimpprint-dev package on the mipsel architecture. Once
the build succeeds there should be a current gs package in testing 
which can be installed together with this gsfonts...

Thanks

Hi *, 

I checked with woody and sid that I can flawlessly install gsfonts, 
therefore this is fixed now. Feel free to bother me if the problem
still exists for you, but I am confident it is working now.
