In this case there should not be any problem. If /minus is defined in 
ISOLatin1Encoding then by default /minus will be used. If someone (like 
me) wants to have something else instead of /minus then one have to 
change encoding and install it with ps.options(encoding=...). I just do 
not want to be forced to use /minus then I do not want it.
