chinese in ghostscript


I have installed ghostscript-8.15.1-1 and I'd like to print in Chinese.
I have the Arphic TTF font file installed in /usr/share/fonts/chinese/TrueType/gbsn00lp.ttf, and I also added the following line to lib/Fontmap:

(Fontmap.ttf) .runlibfile
where lib/Fontmap.ttf has the content

/MSungGBK-Light (/usr/share/fonts/chinese/TrueType/gbsn00lp.ttf) ;
Now there's a test file:

/MSungGBK-Light-GBK-EUC-H findfont 60 scalefont setfont
200 400 moveto (我是一个兵) show
but GS cannot find the font:
Can't find (or can't open) font file /usr/share/ghostscript/8.15/Resource/Font/MSungGBK-Light-GBK-EUC-H.
Can't find (or can't open) font file MSungGBK-Light-GBK-EUC-H.
If I only input "/MSungGBK-Light findfont" it loads the font all right. The "GBK-EUC-H" CMap seems to be installed in Resource/CMap, then what is the problem?

Thanks for any suggestions,
