No, converting to postscript loses all the PDF formatting goodness that 
makes it readable instead of just printable.

I edited 
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/dsssl/modular/print/dbparam.dsl and 
changed

(define %paper-type% "A4")

to

(define %paper-type% "USletter")

and rerunning the entire multi-day generation.

Surely this isn't ideal and the correct way to do this is to set it in a 
stylesheet or pass it in some other way, but this worked for me.
