I'm not sure you want to use ghostscript to do this.  Once you've converted
the PDF to postscript it should just go straight to the postscript engine
on the printer.  Sounds like you might be rasterising the output with
ghostscript and sending a graphical representation of the pages to the HP
using HPGL.

If the ghostscript is what you need for good looking output then maybe
you'll also have to deal with the large files.
