Patch that fixes the configuration file

Using a2ps on a simple text file, with a2ps-4.14-1.1.x86_64 I get

  % a2ps -o x.ps x
  a2ps:/etc/a2ps.cfg:220: invalid option `variable:'

  % ll  /etc/a2ps.cfg
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15964 Dez 16 17:42 /etc/a2ps.cfg
`rpm -V a2ps` indicates I have the vanilla version of that file,
and indeed I never changed anything.

This seems to be due to a spelling of "variable" (lowercase) vs
"Variable", and can be fixed as follows (see attached patch):

-variable: ghostview a2ps-open
+Variable: ghostview a2ps-open

Shawn, might this be related to your update to 4.14?` That was a
while ago, but I do not see any later changes that feel relevant.
