cups & openoffice...bad mojo?

Save me!  The wife can't print, so I've been spooled to the couch!

Originally installed OO around 2.0.  Wouldn't print.  Finally found
some esoteric blog somewhere that said link /usr/local/bin/lpd to
/usr/local/sbin/lpd - voila! prints.

When I upgraded X to 7.3, OO got upgraded to 2.3, and it stopped
printing again.  Now the magical ln lpd command won't fix it either.

FYI, cups-base is 1.1.3
