   In order to process your /etc/papersize, I had to add a wrapper
   programme to the gs package (and call this wrapper programme "gs",
   so that it gets executed when you type "gs"). /usr/bin/gs
   reads /etc/papersize, possibly adds the correct papersize to the
   argumentlist, and then executes /usr/bin/gs-papersize.

I do not have an /etc/papersize and I do not find it in unstable/Contents
nor in /var/lib/dpkg/info/* (neither in a package file list nor in an
installation script).  It seems a pity to have gone to the trouble of
supporting /etc/papersize if it never gets created.  Perhaps I am missing
it because I am running 0.93B4 upgraded to 1.1?

Does latex/dvips support /etc/papersize?  What is the default papersize?

   If you've got a better name please tell me.

It does not matter much to me.  You mentioned it and I was puzzled.

It wasn't easier to edit the argv[] in gs's main()?
