Please see doc/Use.htm#Font_lookup

In particular, the alias mapping from Times-Roman to an actual fontname and
the mapping from the fontname to a file is performed by the contents of

Another complication depends on how ghostscript was configured when it was
built. Usually on linux, by default, Ghostscript uses the 'fontconfig' to
"help" find fonts. To build without fontconfig use:

   configure --disable-fontconfig ; make

Since this isn't a real bug, and since this is not the forum for help, I am
closing this bug.
