Is lpd running?  Do you have it automatically startup at boot time?
Do you have directories with proper permissions for the printcap spooling?
Its also possible print/cups got built and installed on your machine via 
pkgsrc, and you have conflicting system lpr and lpd software in your 
$PATH, like defaulting /usr/bin/lpr when you meant to use cups instead.
