ghostscript-agpl: Update to 9.53.0

pkgsrc changes (for fonts/ghostscript-cidfonts-ryumin):
 - Add SUBST_NOOP_OK.ttf_path, at least for the default `cidfmap-adobe' that's a

Highlights in this release include:

 - The 9.53.0 release is primarily maintenance.
 - The most obvious change is the (re-)introduction of the patch level to the
   version number, this helps facilitate a revised policy on handling security
   related issues.
 - Our efforts in code hygiene and maintainability continue.
 - We have added the capability to build with the Tesseract OCR engine. In
   such a build, new devices are available (pdfocr8/pdfocr24/pdfocr32) which
   render the output file to an image, OCR that image, and output the image
   "wrapped" up as a PDF file, with the OCR generated text information
   included as "invisible" text (in PDF terms, text rendering mode 3).
   Due to some patches to the Tesseract sources that are required (integrated
   upstream, but awaiting release), time constraints, and the experimental
   nature of the feature, we only support including Tesseract from source, not
   linking to Tesseract shared libraries. Whether we add this capability will
   be largely dependant on community demand for the feature.
 - We have added Python bindings for the gsapi interface, can be found in
   demos/python. These are experimental, and we welcome feedback from
   interested developers.
 - For those integrating Ghostscript/GhostPDL via the gsapi interface, we have
   added new capabilities to that, specifically in terms of setting and
   interrogating device parameters. These, along with the existing interface
   calls, are documented in: Ghostscript Interpreter API
 - IMPORTANT: In consultation with a representative of (OpenPrinting) it is
   our intention to deprecate and, in the not distant future, remove the
   OpenPrinting Vector/Raster Printer Drivers (that is, the opvp and oprp
   If you rely on either of these devices, please get in touch with us, so we
   can discuss your use case, and revise our plans accordingly.
 - IMPORTANT: We have forked LittleCMS2 into LittleCMS2mt (the "mt" \ 
   "multi-thread"). LCMS2 is not thread safe and cannot be made thread safe
   without breaking the ABI. Our fork will be thread safe and include
   performance enhancements (these changes have all be been offered and
   rejected upstream). We will maintain compatibility between Ghostscript and
   LCMS2 for a time, but not in perpetuity. If there is sufficient interest,
   our fork will be available as its own package separately from Ghostscript
   (and MuPDF).
 - The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental
