The files are well commented so I think that just a quick mention is in

I've added:

"The principle configuration file for a2ps are found in /etc/a2ps.  For
more information see the comments in the files /etc/a2ps/a2ps.cfg and
/etc/a2ps/a2ps-site.cfg and see info a2ps."

While I'm on the subject, while testing this I ended up with:

[root at markh:/home/logs]# ll /
total 51
drwxr-xr-x   17 root     root          440 Jan  1 21:04 .
drwxr-xr-x   17 root     root          440 Jan  1 21:04 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3937 Jan  1 21:01 a2ps-print.el
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        11168 Jan  1 21:01 a2ps.el

i.e. two files placed in my /

Alex, have you seen this behaviour before?
