I was just minding my own business, trying to print from Lucid Puppy 115, and one day I couldn't. I looked at the CUPS error log, and it turned out Ghostscript was getting mighty finicky about fonts.

Here it is (still about 2 MB), with the offending fonts trashed, and a few non-offending ones added to replace them: http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/pa_penguins_favorite_free_fonts-2.pet .
