printcap configuration problem

Below is what I have in printcap and the filter file. psif is straight out
of the Handbook page. When printing an existing ps file with "$ /usr/bin/lpr
-Php2100", the resulting hardcopy has 3-4 lines truncated from the top - I
can't figure it out.
Secondly, I don't see the point of piping an already ps-formated file
through ghostscript, unless it's to adjust print resolution. Is gs smart
enough to recognize a ps file and simply (and quickly) modify the ink amount
or must it do a complete re-process of the page?
# psif: Print PostScript or plain text on a PostScript printer
IFS="" read -r first_line
first_two_chars=`expr "$first_line" : '\(..\)'`
case "$first_two_chars" in
# %! : PostScript job, print it.
echo "$first_line" && cat && exit 0
# otherwise, format with enscript
( echo "$first_line"; cat ) | /usr/local/bin/enscript -o - && exit 0
