Well as you have the necessary packaging-fu, you could try to add the
Fedora patches which we don't have to the ghostscript package of Mageia 1,
as they have approx. the same version that we have, and they don't have that
problem from what i know. Or simply try first with the cauldron package,
that is the same version as the Fedora one and start from there.

I could do too, but that would be a really lengthy process as i can't test
it directly. You can get the patches and the SPEC for fedora ghostscript here:
