Steps to reproduce:
1. Install graphicsmagic
2. Run the following command on any INPUT.png image file:
$ gm convert INPUT.png -draw 'text 100,100 "String01"' OUTPUT.png
3. Get error:
gm convert: Unable to read font (/usr/share/fonts/Type1/n019003l.pfb) [No such file or directory].

Additional info:
* package version(s)
graphicsmagick 1.3.36-1
* config and/or log files etc.
No configuration modified.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Upstream developer pointed out --with-gs-font-dir build option - on Arch PKGBUILD this is set to /usr/share/fonts/Type1 which does not exist on my system. If this directory belongs to some "generic" gs font then this font should be a dependency of graphicsmagic.
This task depends upon
