Obligatory OS system info:

I was having problems printing from KDE, so I used the ports to download and 
install 'lprng' as well as the 'lprngtool'. The printing problem was solved. 
However, a new problem has arisen.

Upon boot up I receive the following error message:

Local package initialization:
Starting Dr. Web daemon...
Fatal error - Cannot bind to lpd port '515'
I have no idea why this is happening. In addition, when I attempt to run the 
'lprngtool' script from within KDE, I receive the following error message:

Error executing command 'lpq -a -s'
lpq: illegal option -- s
usage: lpq [-a] [-l] [-Pprinter] [user ...] [job ...]

I am not sure if that has anything to do with this or not.

I would certainly appreciate any assistance that someone can afford me.
