Revert r427895.  The symlinks to Japanese and Chinese fonts are
provided to normalize the font names into standardized ones, and to
make the users be able to install the actual font files into
the location pointed by them.  japanese/font-std and chinese/font-std
will install ones which can be redistributed freely, and one can install
commercial font files instead.  To avoid installing big Japanese and
Chinese font files for people who do not need them, this port does not
have explicit runtime dependency on japanese/font-std or chinese/font-std.

I did not fix ports that were such a mess that I could not figure out
what they really wanted to do.  I also did not change ports that had
some version of an auto-plist code in post-install, for the same reason.

japanese/font-std, chinese/font-std, and dependency fixups due
to it have been added.  These are to install standard fonts used in the
Ports Collection.  Currently they contain:


under ${PREFIX}/share/fonts/.  They are just symlinks to
corresponding font files.  The symlink names are based on popular
PostScript font names.

Applications should refer the font files via XLFD or fontconfig
first.  If they need a direct reference to the font file, please use
files in std.*/*.  This is because direct reference to a specific
font name in an application configuration file makes the maintenance
difficult when the font file name is changed, for example.

Cleanup ghostscript-gnu-commfont and related CJK font support meta ports.
Changes include:


 - Use PostScript virtual fonts to handle CJK CID/TT-CID emulated fonts.
   CIDFnmap still works but when a font is both in Resource/Font or
   Resource/CIDFont and in CIDFnmap, the former entry will be used.
   For the actual font mapping, see files in Resource/CIDFont/*.

   So, note that you need to remove (or rename) the virtual font if you use
   CIDFnmap for the moment.  This is still a transitional measure and
   more consistent font management thoughout the ports collection should
   be added later.

   This is just an internal structural change; default font mapping has
   not been changed.

 - Add Chinese font support to print/gsfonts (but no dependency added).
