I meant the one that you set on the device driver, e.g. 

dev.print(file="/tmp/junk.ps", horizontal=FALSE, pointsize=17)

(If it doesn't work now, it will after Wednesday...)

However, par(ps) doesn't quite work as advertized. It will change the
size of text alright, but not the symbol sizes, and it won't regulate
the margin sizes. At least the former of those is probably more bug
than feature...
