Re: License change for ghostscript

This might cause problems for a bunch of packages.

$ repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires --alldeps ghostscript ghostscript-
gtk --qf="%{NAME}: %{LICENSE}" | grep -vP '\bGPL(v3|\S*\+)' | sort

I'm pretty sure that not all these are problems (I haven't checked license 
compatibility of non-GPL licenses with GPLv3+ nor how exactly they use 
ghostscript), and on the other hand some might have been problems also with 
the current GPLv2 ghostscript, but anyway it's a start for a checklist.
