  When running from Lilypond or -sPAPERSIZE=a4: Yes - no cut offs now!

  I had guessed that it was the paper size but could not find a
clue in "man ps2pdf"; there is in "man gs" as you write. Thanks!

  Running ps2pdf from Lilypond works perfectly, producing clickable PDF.

  I have no (ly:set-point-and-click 'line) so I am a little astonished.
When sending a PDF file for print I guess it should not be clickable,
though this is a very minor thing, of course.

"man gs" will tell.

Thank you very much for the hints and help!
