cups-base and cups-lpr - installing from ports

I have satisfactory use of cups-base and cups-lpr, but I believe it
should be possible to install them somewhat more correctly, so that the
1) The system's standard lpr command is replaced by the cups one,
without any manual alteration to the PATH being required.
2) portupgrade -a ceases displaying the messages:
** 'print/cups-lpr' is marked as IGNORE:
"is forbidden: "Changes ownership of system directories""
(and the same for cups-base)
Naturally, it will be necessary to prevent make world installing the
standard lpr but I can already see how to do that.
Any advice would be appreciated.
