The real question you have to ask is why do you want to add three
versions of enscript?  I think the only difference will be the default
paper size.  The default doesn't matter much since you can change the
paper size in the system config file, the user config file, or on the
command line.  Check the man page and notice the '-M' command line
option, and the 'DefaultMedia' configuration option.  The configuration
file is at '/usr/local/etc/enscript.rc' and optionally '~/.enscriptrc'.
