The ghostpcl and ghostxps packages prior to version 9.53.2-2 were missing
a soname link each. This has been fixed in 9.53.2-2, so the upgrade will
need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any
of these errors

    ghostpcl: /usr/lib/libgpcl6.so.9 exists in filesystem
    ghostxps: /usr/lib/libgxps.so.9 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

    pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/libgpcl6.so.9,/usr/lib/libgxps.so.9

to perform the upgrade.
