gsfonts usage in ImageMagick

Not really a bug, but during the test suite I ran into issues where IM couldn't find a few fonts. This was resolved by installing the gsfonts package.

Now I'm wondering if gsfonts is just needed for the test suite or that other parts of ImageMagick also use those fonts? Does anyone know?

No, I believe it is needed when you render PDF/EPS/PS etc files that have text in them using Ghostscript via ImageMagick.
