This is a little further forward as the pr -F filename | lpr also
pusehes out the spare page. I see that the pr -F option is designed to
do form feed, but this can't be what is meant, all these spare
pages. Am I right in assuming that the system page size is set in
/etc/papersize? If so it says a4.

Any suggestions?
