your best bet is to find a suitable rpm.. searching with google I found this link
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/21783131/dir/centos_5/com/ghostscript-9.06-0.tomo.x86_64.rpm.html


alternatively, you'd download the tar.gz file of your interest and, using the .spec file of last goood versione working on SME8 (adapted), try to rebuild your own rpm; it's not so difficult, but you're on your own


BTW, you'd move to SME9

I strongly second, you should move to SME9, SME8 is end of life in 4 months...
