while bordering on helpful, it's not. if you do a bit more rtfm'ing
you'll find that the document can override it. so you can counter the
document's setting by using -dFIXEDMEDIA -sPAPERSIZE=a4 which is great -
the printer won't sit there waiting for you to insert letter sized paper.
this, and other exciting documentation can be found in
/usr/doc/ghostscript-* on a redhat system.
however it will still merrily chop the margin off which makes it
quite difficult to read.
so i'll ask again, what linux utility will scale a postscript file
to 94% of it's normal size?
the document i'm attempting to print:
