The PDF Reference lists /PrintPageRange as being introduced with PDF1.7 .
Therefore you will need to use something along the lines of the following:
/PrintPageRange [1 2]
where \pdfminorversion=7 is used to get a %PDF-1.7 header.
With my setup, Linux/SuSE10.1, the above works with AR8.1.1
but not with AR7.0.9 . Note the pages count from 0. Therefore
in the above example the print dialog will show the page range
as being 2-3.
