ACK!  My apologies; I confused the man pages for the command and
the file.  papersize(5) is about the file /etc/papersize;
paperconf(1) is the command that reads and writes it.  You should
have it; it appears to have been written for Debian.

I still think the key to finding the source of this problem is in
your two Debian systems.  In one, the file displays correctly; in
the other, it doesn't.  Find out where they differ for displaying
PostScript; that's where your problem is most likely to be.
