There is already a bug report for gs :

#857: gs (2.6.1pl4-4) doesn't use /etc/papersize; -sPAPERSIZE not documented
   Package: gs_both; Reported by: iwj10@cus.cam.ac.uk (Ian Jackson); 123 days old. 

: Firstly, the `-sPAPERSIZE=<foo>' option is not mentioned in gs(1), but
: only in /usr/doc/ghostscript, and there doesn't seem to be an
: obviously available list of supported paper sizes.  `A4' doesn't seem
: to work, while `a4' does.

Ghostview uses ghostscript, a fix in gs should IMHO fix your problem too.
