Till, would you please take a look and fix pstotext then please?

Your upload of ghostscript to Ubuntu broke a package in Ubuntu. I think
that there is a responsibility of the uploader to take care of things
broken by their upload.

Title:
  ghostscript 9.22 breaks pstotext: Unrecoverable error: undefined in
  DELAYBIND

Status in ghostscript package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix
Status in pstotext package in Ubuntu:
  New

Bug description:
  I noticed after my poppler upload that the "doc-rfc" tests are failing

  
https://objectstorage.prodstack4-5.canonical.com/v1/AUTH_77e2ada1e7a84929a74ba3b87153c0ac
  /autopkgtest-bionic/bionic/amd64/d/doc-
  rfc/20180410_090135_46f84@/log.gz

  These tests basically zcat a ps.gz file to pstotext. It's this that is
  broken. See:

   *** WARNING - the DELAYBIND command has been deprecated, and will be

                 the behaviour by using -dREALLYDEALYBIND but if you
                 require continued use of this command you should contact
                 the Ghostscript developers. Commercial customers of

                 channel on irc.freenode.net.

  Unrecoverable error: undefined in DELAYBIND
  laney@nightingale> echo $?

  but downgrading ghostscript libgs9 libgs9-common to the previous
  version 9.21~dfsg+1-0ubuntu3 fixes it:
