Your patch reverts the security updates which lead to KDE 3.1.1a (from 3.1.1).
See http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20030409-1.txt for more info.
As Waldo says however, gs should be able to find its fonts. According to
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/gnu/7.05/Language.htm , the .locksafe
command should allow gs to read the paths contained in /FontResourceDir and
FONTPATH. Therefore, this seems like it might be an instalation problem where
you have gs malconfigured (in particular /FontResourceDir is not being set
Maybe adding a couple of directories to your FONTPATH evnv var would fix the
problems you are seeing.
