Yep, FWIW I found this:

  FC_WEIGHT refers to the weight of a font (light, bold, regular, ExtraBold
  etc). This message can *only* arise when you are using FontConfig, and
  Ghostscript is enumerating the available fonts from font config, trying
  to find a match for a missing font in the input. This means that a
  candidate font did not match the target font's weight.

  Since you aren't going to use the font, it doesn't affect you.
