Uploaded and accepted into gutsy-proposed, too.

Recipe: Simply try to install ghostscript-doc on a non-i386 platform. This will fail with gutsy's ghostscript installed, but succeed with this updated ghostscript version (the .html file is gone there).

Agh. Collided with security update. I can confirm this fix, and since it is minor, I'm going to add it to the security build and release 8.61.dfsg.1~svn8187-0ubuntu3.2.

    'ghostscript', too (incomplete fix in previous versions), since they are
    already shipped in ghostscript-doc and thus have a file conflict.
