I'm still trying to understand how all this works and I appreciate
all of the help. I decided to look at this file and found this
# Default distiller is ps2pdf from /usr/local/bin in no filter mode
# as the direct call to a filtering gs does not work yet for some reason
#distillerprog="/usr/local/bin/gs -dCompatibility=1.3 -q -dNOPAUSE -
dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=- -c save pop"
All of this is a comment.

I did test it. No change.
To kludge or not to kludge---change 90 to 89.99999. That'll get me by
for the moment.
