I think the geometry package will help you here. It adds some  
\specials to
the dvi file to fix the papersize to whatever you specify at runtime.  
As a
bonus it will also set the correct paper size for pdflatex.

Unfortunately the current release of the geometry package doesn't use  
recommended way to detect pdf or dvi mode, so you'll need to specify the
driver directly.
