I noticed that the cups port now installs a cups user and group. I
infer from that change that some portion of cups now runs as a
non-privileged user, and that if you're driving a parallel port, it
needs to writable (readable too?) by the new cups user.
(I encountered this problem on my RELENG_6/i386 print server machine,
made /dev/lpt0 owned by cups:cups, and it worked. Edit /etc/devfs.conf
to set this ownership on the next reboot.)
