Not sure about your case or how fedora package ghostscript. However ghostscript
 comes with a set of equivalent pfb files in Resource/Font with their names
changed to the old ones (e.g. Nimbus Roman No9 L).

Btw the maintainer seems to have plan to modify ghostscript to adapt to the new
names in the future (For easier management I suppose, and Nimbus Sans Narrow is
FINALLY a font family now).
