Has MSFT Japan changed the license on those?  Last time I looked
(about two years ago) they were still licensed for use only with

This will work on X, but it doesn't work with Ghostscript last I
checked.  There is magic in a .ttc file that Ghostscript doesn't know
about, I think.  The KDE loader is irrelevant to Ghostscript AFAIK,
it's only for X.  Also, for me Ghostscript 8.x (all versions tried so
far) crashes in gccache.c with Japanese TrueType fonts, of any vendor.
