Hallo Charles

The prior question is:
        Do you use SuSEConfig ?
        Or did you switch it of ?
        (/etc/rc.config: ENABLE_SUSECONFIG="yes" or "no")

If you use SuSEConfig please set /etc/rc.config: GROFF_PAGESIZE="a4"
        and run SuSEConfig.
If not set /usr/share/groff/font/devps/DESC: paperlength 841890

I know this difficulty.  Werner Lemberg advised to prefix 
the macropackage request with -ma4 e.g.

        groff -Tps-a4 -ma4 -ms >

(Remark: I use some devps trees with changes in DESC for different
        paperlength values: /usr/share/groff/font/ devps-a4 devps-let,
        devps is unchanged)

I use man and ms. I hope this true for mm also.
