1. Try, whether installer/gnome-font-install is built correctly. Just
   invoke it with gnome-font-install --debug

What happens, if you try to run gnome-font-install with given argument 
manually? For some reason it does not run from install script.

run-gnome-font-install simply does some heuristics to find out type1
foints used by ghostscript, and invokes gnome-font-install afterwards.

The working gs is not strictly required. It is only used to find
handful of usable type1 fonts from system. There is certain set of
default directories hardcoded at the start of run-gnome-font-install,
so if your fonts are in these directories, you do not need gs. But you
have to install ghostscript-fonts package (from your script output I
feeling, that you have not).
