I recently had to submit a paper to an IEEE conference and there was a
missing embedded font in the PDF (coming from a figure created in R). I
spent an hour trying to play around with the fonts in R, etc. with no
results. Finally I googled the problem and found that GS was able to solve
it (even using the fonts on my Windows 10 machine!). Like for you, gs has
helped me many times over the years, even before PS/PDF was a mainstream
format. Much like you, I was surprised... but not.
