	The shell scripts included with the print/pdfjam port should be
	configurable from /usr/local/etc/pdfnup.conf.  They attempt to
	source this and other files.  They begin with #!/bin/sh which
	runs them in a shell that uses . instead of "source."
	echo "paper=letterpaper" > /usr/local/etc/pdfnup.conf
	pdfnup --help
	Note that defaults still specify paper=a4paper.
	I just changed the scripts to run /usr/local/bin/bash and that seems
	to work.  But it might be better to make them . instead of
	source.  I just didn't take the time to look for any other
	bash dependencies.  I suppose that there might not be any.
