Description of problem:
tetex default config inconsistency. 

I have been annoyed by a misconfiguration of tetex in Red Hat for a long
time now. On every system I used I had to run explicitly "texconfig" in
order to change my default page-size for postscript to be letter (and
not default A4). I'm calling it a bug because for xdvi it is US letter
by default so this default configuration will probably work nowhere. The
problem is that probably most of new users will give up on Latex or try
to do some bad things like \voffset ... 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install tetex
2. try to print any ps document generated by latex 
3. the output is not correctly centered on the letter page

Actual Results:  The output is not correctly centered on the letter page.

Expected Results:  Correct printing

Additional info:

There is a very easy workaround. You fix the problem by running texconfig and by
choosing correct paper size.
