I have upgraded Ghostscript to 9.26 but the error persists

(after cleaning all files and starting from scratch)

$ ps2pdf testfcweight.ps
DEBUG: FC_WEIGHT didn't match
$ gs --version

MacOS 10.9.5 (a very good system still recent, 2014 I think)
TL 2018 fully updated

I get the same with the MacPorts TL2018 (december 2018) binaries.
(except for the kpse* binaries picked up from darwinlegacy, sorry
for complication).

I have not tested with TL2019-pretest.

Very strangely I *thought* having reproduced once the problem
with Bob example


on my TeXLive 2018 with 9.26 Ghostscript and darwinlegacy binaries

$ ps2pdf testfcweight.ps
DEBUG: FC_WEIGHT didn't match

but, I did not get it 

- not with the MacPorts binaries

- not with my own compiled binaries from long time ago

and now I can *not* reproduce with darwinlegacy either.

But I do confirm the problem on my PsTricks example

and **all three** sets of binaries.

(each time I do fmtutil-sys --all and updmap-sys)

Sorry not to report yet on pretest situation.

But this is to point out this issue was already there in some configurations of users
with TeXLive 2018.
