Sorry, in addition to the "page-count = 1" line you might need to fiddle with the global-staff-size or other parameters because the footer is running off the bottom after forcing it to one page. The page-count setting is mentioned somewhere in the docs. I found it on a google search a few weeks ago when trying to make one of my pieces fit on three instead of four pages. Very handy setting!

        I'm trying to typeset a piece, that should fit on a single
page.  Lilypond keeps trying to put it on two pages.

I've put in \paper{

and measured the system height, and the single system that flows onto
page two  should fit in the gap between the first page footer and the
last system.

The only solution I've come up with (which is ugly) is
        \paper {

Is there a better way?  The documentation reference seems to suggest
that setting between-system-padding and between-system-space should
affect this, but their semantics aren't really described.

I've attached the file.  Sorry, it's not exactly a `minimal' example,
but to show what I mean it has to have a page-worth of stuff.
