The reason it is the right thing to do is that very often there are security
bugs with these types of library.  For an operating system distribution it is
much safer to have only one copy of each security bug, rather than several
scattered around in various bundled forms.

Every project that uses any other project has this issue of testing, and yet
virtually no-one else bundles libraries.

I'm not asking for something new in ghostscript: this is already done for the
majority of other shared library components.
