Here's one way:

Use Adobe Acrobat Distiller and Acrobat Exchange. How? Easy!

1. Individually distill each PostScript file, which creates new PDF files
of your PostScript files.

2. Open Acrobat Exchange with one of the new PDF files. Import additional
PDF files in the page order in which you want the final document. Save the
file. If a PDF file will do, your job is complete. If you still need a
PostScript file of the entire concatenated document, simply print the
PDF file as a PostScript file (an option available to you on Macs and
PCs, and probably Unix boxes, too, in some convoluted fashion).

Yeah, it requires a bunch of steps and a lot of time, but it also ensures
any style issues remain addressed throughout--and--you won't have to tinker
with PostScript code! That's worth the price of admission by itself!
