      Apsfilter requires usually two invocations in order to print a document.  Unfortunately, since I installed Apsfilter first, I cannot tell whether this is a problem with lpr itself.  I may have to wipe the apsfilter portion of printcap clean in order to test this.
      Compile apsfilter from ports.  Go through the setup utility.  In my case the driver was generic postscript, 600dpi, /dev/lpt0, parallel port,  and some minor params I have forgotten.
