Your PDF file uses a CIDFont (Arial) but does not include the font. You must
supply a replacement CIDFont with the correct name in order for Ghostscript to
be able to process the PDF file.

There are 2 ways to do this:

1) Locate a genuine CIDFont named Arial, place it in gs/Resource/CIDFont and
then tell Ghostscript to use disk files as well as the built in file system.
This is done with the -I command line switch (eg -I/gs/Resource).

2) Use a TrueType font as a replacement. To do this you need to edit
gs/Resource/Init/cidfmap and add an entry for the font (Arial), specifying the
TrueType font to be used instead and some other parameters. You must then also
tell Ghostscritp to use the specified file, again using the -I switch as above.

You can also use an existing CIDfont with a different name as a replacement by
specifying this in the cidfmap file.

Please refer to the documentation in :

Look for "CID fonts" and "CID font substitution".
