One more thing I discovered. When I set up a local configuration file
it does work again. Only the global '/etc/a2ps.cfg' doesn't seem to have the
desired effect.
BTW, I configured a link to '/usr/local/etc/', but that doesn't change

So I'm fine for the moment with the local configuration file, but I'm just
if somebody else was discovering something like that.
