Yes, there is! At least in the version I am using. For me altpdf(la)tex 
is a symlink to simpdftex, version 2.18.

The argument would be: ``--distiller "pdf2pdf13 
-dAutoRotatePages=/None"´´ -- but: the script then uses the string 
'pdf2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None' as programme name, and so it fails.

A workaround would be a little script with this contents:

	ps2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None "$@"

and passing this script's name as the argument for the --distiller 
option. Don't forget 'chmod 755 <script>'!

As Gerben probably reads this list I think he'll provide an option to 
pass arguments to the distiller programme ...



Never be led astray onto the path of virtue.
