* Backport change from Debian 
"Add patch cherry-picked upstream to fix add gserrors.h to the
installed files for the so-install target."

* New upstream release
- Ghostscript 9.18
- A new method of internally inserting devices into the device chain has
been developed, named "device subclassing". This allows suitably
written devices to be more easily and consistently as "filter" devices.
The first fruit of this is a new implementation of the
"-dFirstPage"/"-dLastPage" feature which functions a device filter in
the Ghostscript graphics library, meaning it works consistently with
all input languages.
- Plus the usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental
* 020150523_d73a342_gdevcups_support_color_spaces_18_19_20.patch,
020150724_0c0b085_sanity_check_for_memory_allocation.patch: Removed,
included upstream.
* 2001_docdir_fix_for_debian.patch,
1002_pxl-make-dicctransform-default.patch: Refreshed with quilt.
* debian/symbols.common: Updated for new upstream source. Applied patch
which dpkg-gensymbols generated for debian/libgs9.symbols to this file.
