This collection of utilities is for manipulating PostScript
documents.  Page selection and rearrangement are supported, including
arrangement into signatures for booklet printing, and page merging
for n-up printing.
The following programs are included in psutils: epsffit, extractres,
fixdlsrps, fixfmps, fixmacps, fixpsditps, fixpspps, fixscribeps,
fixtpps, fixwfwps, fixwpps, fixwwps, getafm, includeres, psbook,
psmerge, psnup, psresize, psselect, pstops, showchar
Some programs included here (psmerge) behave differently if gs is
available, but all programs work without it.

* Include patch from Bernhard R. Link to remove paper size information
and bounding boxes from psnup and psresize.  This removes bugs
resulting in having usually incorrect information in files when the
paper size has changed, reasoning that having no information is better
than having incorrect information.  (Closes: #368331, #434500)
* Honor DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip by not explicitly calling install -s
to strip executables and instead letting dh_strip do it for us.
