You could maybe work around the problem by going via PDF, i.e.

ps2pdf file.ps
pdfnup --outfile newfile.pdf --nup nxm file.pdf
pdftops newfile.pdf

"nxm" is the nup specification, e.g. 2x3 for two columns by three rows.
You might have to use "--paper" and "--orient" in the pdfnup step to get
exactly the result you want.
