No, I can't cross-compile gs on my main system.  If Debian provides a
gcc cross-compiler which can create binaries for Windows I could try
it on one of my Raspberries. 

Does it really hurt when the resource dirs are compiled into the
binary?  The (incompable) fonts are compiled into the binary too, but
when I provide lib/Fontmap the fonts *I* provide are used.

So I'm wondering whether ghostscript insists on built-in resources
even if they are available on the file system.

I'll look into it tomorrow.  Too late in Central Europe now...
