This is just a quickshot - since I have no such setup available 
at the moment:
check if the native FreeBSD lpr in /usr/bin/lpr is still active - 
cups' lpr lives in /usr/local/bin/lpr and won't be executed then. 
If this is the case you should be able to print with
# /usr/local/bin/lpr your_file
and in Google you can find descriptions how to fix this properly.
