Here my follow-up to the paper size discussion.

>From the NEWS file:

  o A new keyword `papersize' has been added to the DESC file format.
    Its argument is either

    . a predefined paper format (e.g. `A4' or `letter')

    . a file name pointing to a file which must contain a paper size
      specification in its first line (e.g. `/etc/papersize')

    . a custom paper size definition like `35c,4i'

    See groff_font(5) for more details.  This keyword only affects the
    physical dimensions of the output medium; grops and grolbp use it
    currently.  troff completely ignores it.


  o Valid paper sizes are now specified as with the new `papersize'
    keyword in the DESC file.  Specifically, the old custom paper type
    format `custAAAxBBB' is no longer supported.


  o A new option `-p' is available to select the output paper size.
    It has the same syntax as the new `papersize' keyword in the DESC

Please test and enjoy!
