I think you have to use pstops (NOT ps2ps) for this. Psnup always wants
to scale/rotate the pages.
If you thought 'psnup' was hard to follow, wait 'til you try this ;-)
Here's the syntax that worked for me:
# example: combine two statement pages (5.5 x 8.5”)
# on one landscape/letter page
pstops -pletter '2:0L(8.5in,0)+1L(8.5in,5.5in)' docfile.ps
Note that this may not work with every application, depending on exactly
how they construct their output PostScript. E.g some apps may change the
coordinate system, so that pstops has to be told to adjust the rotation.
There's a lot of helpful information here as well:
