Error when doing ps2ps

First of all, I must say that I use the a2ps quite extensively, and it
is very useful. Thank you very much for making it available (that too, free)!

However, I have problems converting a ps to a ps:

I have a ps file, which I want to convert it to landscape mode, 
with 2 columns each page. Using a2ps 4.12 on a sun solaris, I did:

a2ps --landscape --columns=2 -o y.ps feedback.ps

I get an error:

awk: syntax error near line 2
awk: illegal statement near line 2
[feedback.ps (ps, delegated to PsNup): 1 page on 1 sheet]
[Total: 0 pages on 0 sheets] saved into the file `y.ps'

With a2ps 4.13, I get a different errro message:

/home/vibhu/q/a2ps-4.13/src/a2ps --landscape --columns=2 -o y.ps feedback.ps


a2ps:/usr/local/share/a2ps/sheets/sheets.map:50: unexpected character `*'

Is there something I am missing? Or, is this too much for a2ps
to do? I will attach the feedback.ps FYI.
