IMO you shouldn't do that! It's better to use the geometry package:
it can record dimensions in the output produced by TeX.
Your PS file has a "%%BoundingBox: 0 0 595 842" and a "%%
DocumentPaperSizes: a4" while mine has only "%%BoundingBox: 0 0 612
792" – which is letter format! Your DVI file seems to have been in
ISO A4 format: "TeXDict begin 39139632 55387786 1000 600 600 (top.dvi)".
Comparing the two PS files I see the "texts" and the page numbers
start at exactly the same positions. This did not change after I had
corrected my private dvips configuration to use ISO A4 paper.
My psnup-a4 package was installed with Fink. I cannot see any frame
that the -d switch of psnup produces, neither in my nor in your PS
file. I see only a thick vertical line that divides the landscape ISO
A4 paper into two equal parts. The geometry has a showframe option ...
