Fwiw I have had that message with TL2018 for a long time

I mostly use dvipdfmx, but recently I started experimenting
with PsTricks hence latex+dvips+ps2pdf and I systematically
get that.





(using TL 2018 fully updated, binaries self-compiled on Mac OS X 10.9.5)

gives on ps2pdf step

DEBUG: FC_WEIGHT didn't match

Notice that above contains no character glyph in output

My gs is in /opt/local/bin, it is I think a MacPorts install

$ which gs
$ which ps2pdf

I have some other problems with this, inclusive of files
which I could compile under xelatex (of TL2018) but not
via latex+dvips+ps2pdf,
