Thanks. I did, indeed, try psresize (though I found it just after I sent
the post). Viewing the result through gv, however, it looks like it
shrank the first page so that it fit within the smaller space, then
replaced the other 400 pages with scattered, inscrutable error messages.
(I can view the original ps file in gv just fine.)
Digging further through psutils, I tried running the original file
through fixfmps, which is supposed to fix FrameMaker-induced PostScript
problems (though its development seems to have ended five years before
the release of the version of FrameMaker that I use). That also gave
errors similar to those that psresize gave.
