Yes, there is! At least in the version I am using. For me altpdf(la)tex
is a symlink to simpdftex, version 2.18.
The argument would be: ``--distiller "pdf2pdf13
-dAutoRotatePages=/None"´´ -- but: the script then uses the string
'pdf2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None' as programme name, and so it fails.
A workaround would be a little script with this contents:
ps2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None "$@"
and passing this script's name as the argument for the --distiller
option. Don't forget 'chmod 755 <script>'!
As Gerben probably reads this list I think he'll provide an option to
pass arguments to the distiller programme ...
Never be led astray onto the path of virtue.
