Uninstalling Ghostscript entirely might cause software using libgs to not execute at all unless a stub library is put in its place. Dependencies on Ghostscript are much larger than one would initially think due to Postscript being the traditional output from Unix software for "printing" and thus it is used as an intermediate format in order to convert between formats. EPS content is also embedded in some other formats.
