ghostscript-agpl: updated to 9.52

Version 9.52:

Highlights in this release include:

The 9.52 release replaces the 9.51 release after a problem was reported with \ 
9.51 which warranted the quick turnaround. Thus, like 9.51, 9.52 is primarily a \ 
maintenance release, consolidating the changes we introduced in 9.50.

We have continued our work on code hygiene for this release, with a focus on the \ 
static analysis tool Coverity (from Synopsys, Inc) and we have now adopted a \ 
policy of maintaining zero Coverity issues in the Ghostscript/GhostPDL source \ 
base.

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 devices).

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" \ 
indicating "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 improvements.
