By chance do you have cups-lpr installed? Be sure you read the Makefile
and a couple of other files because you will needo to tell
/etc/make.conf to forever more not make the lp* stuff (that information
is in man make.conf) because cups has its own version of the lp* items.
Everytime you makeworld you'll wipe it out.
If you do have it installed then you may want to uninstall it then
reinstall a make world might have wiped it out.
From there you should then be able to print.
In a few words: Works for me. :) (Well sort of, having some sort of
font/printer driver problem where certain fonts are squished together)
