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()?
