In the meantime, I have another xpdf problem.  After my update of the
ghostscript fonts, I get the following errors when starting xpdf:

Config Error: No display font for 'Courier'
Config Error: No display font for 'Courier-Bold'
Config Error: No display font for 'Courier-BoldOblique'
Config Error: No display font for 'Courier-Oblique'

Reinstalling the old ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11-1 fixes it.  Copying
the files from /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35 to
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts doesn't fix it.

Do you happen to know how Fedora handles this?  I didn't see anything
obvious in xpdf.spec.

As a (temporary?) workaround, I've added the *.pfb files from the old
ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11-1 package to urw-base35-fonts.  If I find out
that Fedora has a better way of handling it, I can always change this.

This needs to be properly fixed in xpdf itself:

The patch I posted there *appears* to work, but hasn't been tested much yet.

It appears to work for me too.  Thanks.
