Minimal Ghostscript for minimal build requirements

Crippled Minimal Ghostscript which is
not meant to be used by end-users.

Minimal Ghostscript provides only the file
format drivers in particular to output
JPEG PNG PostScript and PDF files but no
printer drivers (in particular neither
'cups' nor 'ijs') and no X11 drivers.

The ghostscript-mini package is only meant
to be used by the openSUSE build service
to avoid possible loops in the build
dependencies because ghostscript-mini
has minimal build dependencies (in particular
neither CUPS nor X11 build dependencies).

For most packages which need to only run
Ghostscript during build, a single line
"BuildRequires: ghostscript-mini"
should be sufficient in the RPM spec file.

For most packages which need Ghostscript
development files to build, a single line
"BuildRequires: ghostscript-mini-devel"
should be sufficient in the RPM spec file.

The ghostscript-mini package in the openSUSE
build service contains no sources and it
must not contain any source files. The
ghostscript-mini package is only a link
to its matching ghostscript "parent" package.
Only that ghostscript package must contain
all sources and any changes must happen only
for that ghostscript package. This means any
changes for the ghostscript-mini package will
be rejected in the openSUSE build service.
