Nothing, but since it is not really a postscript command, just a
structure comment, so I would expect pstopdf to ignore it.

The situation is a bit complicated because removing the -dAuto...
makes other documents fail. You are right for this document,
but that is only a subset of the potentially wrong files :-(

By checking the output manually and adjusting that option as neede,
I fear.
