The way I've handled this is implicit in the attached Makefile.  I
build the chapters individually, then cat the PostScript together and
run Emacs in batch mode to tidy it up.

        emacs -batch $@ -l $F/massageps.el -f massageps -f exit

Basically, the tidying involves removing redundant headers and
trailers and renumbering the pages.  Presumably this could be done in
the scripting language of $your choice.  I'm also attaching the Emacs
macros.  I use them for a number of different things, so there's
unnecessary stuff in there.  The macros of interest are (massageps)
and (renumber-pages).
