Fixed. Thanks to you and bamunds.

a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-23.txz: Rebuilt.
Removed stray cat and loop kludges for lack of reported size, since this
is fixed now in tar.
a/tar-1.30-x86_64-3.txz: Rebuilt.
Fixed a bug in the nolonezero patch that was evidently causing all of the
issues in installpkg that we'd been kludging around (e.g. the "stray cat").
Thanks *very* much to NonNonBa for the patch, and to SeB for the initial
analysis of the problem.
ap/ghostscript-9.24-x86_64-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Applied upstream patch to fix "Filter failed". Thanks to th_r and bamunds.

d/gdb-8.2-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
d/indent-2.2.12-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
isolinux/initrd.img: Rebuilt.
usb-and-pxe-installers/usbboot.img: Rebuilt.

Printing pdf files gives error status from pdftops filter here in 14.2 and -current with latest ghostscript. This is the command line pdftops uses:
gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER -dNOMEDIAATTRS -sDEVICE=ps2write -dShowAcroForm -sOUTPUTFILE=%stdout -dLanguageLevel=3 -f file.pdf > /dev/null
Entered like that tells me
  ./base/gsicc_manage.c:1244: gsicc_open_search(): Could not find default_rgb.icc 
| ./base/gsicc_manage.c:2025: gsicc_set_device_profile(): cannot find device profile
GPL Ghostscript 9.24: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
  ./base/gsicc_manage.c:1244: gsicc_open_search(): Could not find default_gray.icc 
| ./base/gsicc_manage.c:2025: gsicc_set_device_profile(): cannot find device profile
ghostscript-9.23-x86_64-3 works ok. The fix is here Tested and it works after applying these two patches:
