how to pass options to print filter

Hi !

I run FreeBSD-4.8-RELEASE and I wanted to know is the LPD in the base 
installation accepts options to send to the print filter.
I have a filter which I can send options to (like pagesize=a4...). I 
know that with LPRng, I can use "lpr -Z option" and the spooler then 
send "option" to the print filter.
Is there a way to do this with LPD ?
That would be great so I won't have to create like 10 queues (one for 
color+A4, on for photo+A4, one for color+A6...).
Thanks in advance.
