Hi Brian
 The standard carbon film 1/4W can stand up on
the same 0.1 inch grid as the pre-made rpacks.
I'd just lay it out for the resistors.
 It may also be that the best value is not 91 ohms.
The original board material may be different and
surely your trace width and spacing will be
different than the original. The desired resistance
may actually be anywhere from about 35 ohms to
100 ohms someplace. Most drivers don't work well
at the lower end of the range that board traces
can go in impedance. If you can, try to keep
the trace impedance in the order of 75 ohms.
