When I generate a PDF through a "groff -Tps | ps2pdf" pipeline, the
PDF's paper size comes out correct if I give groff the proper -P-p
flag (passing the paper size along to grops) and set .pl and .ll
appropriately within the groff file.  That is, I don't tell ps2pdf the
paper size; it picks this up automatically from groff's PostScript
output.  Does giving ps2pdf the -sPAPERSIZE option provide any extra
functionality?  Or are there situations where ps2pdf can't glean it
from the input?
