I think I will do that (new ticket) since as mentioned when switching from
9.16 back to 9.10 behaviour goes back to normal in my case.

just a remark: I looked at https://trac.macports.org/ticket/42395 and
noted the comments regarding absence of "Times related" fonts in
/opt/local/share/ghostscript/9.10/Resource/Font/. I believe this is a
misconception: AFAIK, ghostscript is using the (free) Nimbus font family
(Mon, RomNo9, San) as drop in replacement for Courier, Times, Helvetica,
respectively, so I would think the required fonts are actually there ...
not that this helps to understand what's going on.
