Thanks.  I tried these usepackage calls and got the following

%%BoundingBox: 0 0 595 842

%%BoundingBox: 0 0 612 792

%%BoundingBox: 0 0 612 792

Switching to dvips did change the BoundingBox, but I still have no
control over it!

By the way, I've confirmed that I can control the BoundingBox in
ghostscript and Mac OS X Previewer, the sizes actually change in one
example.  However, if I alter the bounding box in the page generated
by LaTeX/dvips, the size is not changed, so there must be something
overriding the BoundingBox!  I deleted some lines that said it was a4
paper and that made no difference.
