Security Update: Ghostscript

The ghostscript package has been patched to fix several security problems on -Current. It is released on the same day here in Indonesia (Tuesday evening), but it's 39 minutes past midnight at Pat's place. Have a good sleep after releasing this package wave

Anyway, here's the security advisory today:
Tue Jun 30 00:39:54 CDT 2009
ap/ghostscript-8.64-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched various problems with ghostscript that could lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code when processing a malicious or malformed file.
