I'm not sure this is about using R,
but you can use `psutils' and in
particular the `psnup'-command.

To make a new PS-file `quater.ps', putting
four pages from the file `semel.ps' on each
page, type

psnup -4 semel.ps quater.ps

It is possible to rescale page sizes, 
change orientation etc.
A nice tutorial is Chapter 21 from 
The Linux Cookbook. You can find it
in the `Guides'-section on www.tldp.org
