    Affects: users of print/psutils-a4 or print/psutils-letter
      print/psutils-a4 and print/psutils-letter have been merged into a single port
      print/psutils.  The default paper size in psnup(1), psresize(1), and
      pstops(1) is now selected via an environment variable and/or a configuration
      file of libpaper(3).  For more detail, see papersize(5) and paperconfig(8)
      manual page.    If you prefer A4 or letter size by default as the old
      version did, please install print/papersize-default-a4 or
      print/papersize-default-letter, which installs a papersize configuration
      file without manual configuration.
