The %%...Setup section would presumably be the correct place in an
EPSF file (though -- obligatory crystallography -- the procheck files
aren't (all?) conforming anyhow since they leave things on the
PostScript stack).

However, any application which doesn't allow you to scale/rotate an
included PostScript file (in terms of the page layout parameters) is
seriously deficient -- that is one of the Right Things the PostScript
file conventions are designed for and trivial in LaTeX, for instance.

I'd still recommend the expediency of photoreduction and physical
cut-and-paste.
