Wouldn't it be packages using the libraries that might pose problems?

$ repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires --alldeps
'libgs.so.8()(64bit)' 'libijs-0.35.so()(64bit)' --qf="%{NAME}:
%{LICENSE}"
foomatic: GPLv2+
ghostscript-devel: GPLv2 and Redistributable, no modification permitted
libspectre: GPLv2+
ImageMagick: ImageMagick
ghostscript: GPLv2 and Redistributable, no modification permitted
ghostscript-gtk: GPLv2 and Redistributable, no modification permitted
ghostscript-devel: GPLv2 and Redistributable, no modification permitted
gutenprint: GPLv2+

Other packages would be invoking the executable, which (AIUI) is not
considered "based on" ghostscript.

The ImageMagick license seems to be compatible with GPLv3.
