You're in charge of fonts for Fedora and you think that it's ghostscript that
chose /usr/share/fonts/defaults to "dump its fonts"?

ghostscript as distributed by ghostscript doesn't put its fonts in that
directory. But because several packages depend on those fonts, the Fedora
packagers chose to put them into the default tree under /usr/share/fonts.
No doubt you mean something different by "distribution default" but I guess you
prefer just being rude.
