Once you have your 3' x 5' poster PDF, you could use ImageMagick to chop it up. The following command would cut it into 20 equal sized images (four horizontally, five vertically). That should be good enough for proofing. The resulting files will be named piece_00.pdf through piece_19.pdf.

convert source.pdf -crop 4x5@ +repage +adjoin piece_%02d.pdf
