The patches do not cleanly apply to 9.26 - just asking upstream if the will push some backport to 9.26 release again. 9.27 is in testing status and may need some more time until release.

Upstream is not going to backport anything this time.

Maybe you could split ghostscript package to 'ghostscript' + 'libgs' and use only the latter as dependency for others packages (the former could be an optional one). This way users could get rid of ghostscript binaries.

Also it may be worth to build ImageMagick with `--without-gslib'. It will allow replacing with <policy domain="delegate" rights="none" pattern="gs" /> as a more bearable workaround for users.
