Wow.  I never thought to check for that.  That's exactly what the issue was.
Once I changed the paper size in my ppd file, it only took 2 printings of
the align.ps page to get the margins working.  The measuring instructions
for the clipped edges make a lot more sense once all four edges of the
document are visible.

Note to self, and anyone else setting up a printer's margins using the
alignmargins program with the align.ps doc from www.linuxprinting.com: make
sure you check the paper size before getting mad at the document or printer.

Thanks for thinking of that, Brenda, it's working great now.
