Fixing an exception while installing ghostscript on MacOS X using macports

If you ever encountered the following exception while installing ghostscript using macports:

--->  Verifying checksums for ghostscript
Error: org.macports.checksum for port ghostscript returned: ghostscript-fonts-other-6.0.tar.gz does not exist in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/ghostscript
Error: Failed to install ghostscript

 The solution is very simple.

Simply download the missing file from here and place it manually in


This should fix it.

It took me awhile to find it and I would like to thanks this thread to pointing me to the right answer.
