libidn: another dependency

If you run "prt-get dependent" on libidn, you just get gnutls. However ghostscript is an unlisted dependency too. After the latest libidn update, ghostscript stopped working on my machine. ldd showed that it was linked to the new through gnutls (which I rebuilt a couple of days ago) but also directly to, which of course was no longer there. And that was enough to put my printer out of commission.

I have rebuilt ghostscript and now everything works again (cross fingers!). Really this libidn update has caused more trouble than it's worth.
