Hi guys.  I need to output to letter-sized paper, and I normally use
"dvips -t letter".

When I run ly2dvi with the -P option and --set=papersize="letter", the
postscript is generated correctly:

  %DVIPSCommandLine: dvips -t letter -o ly2dvi.out.dvi

However, if I just have `papersize = "letter"' at the top of my file,
running "ly2dvi -P" generated postscript using the following dvips

  %DVIPSCommandLine: dvips -o ly2dvi.out.dvi

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

On the same note, "-P" in 1.3.145 seems to behave differently than in
1.3.124.  For some reason, ly2dvi -P now is calling metafont to
regenerate all the fonts on each invocation.  If I call dvips
manually, the fonts aren't regenerated each time.  Bug?  Or
misconfiguration on my part?
