No, it does not. You must at least tell emacs that it must use
/usr/local/bin/lpr (which is the CUPS lpr) and not /usr/bin/lpr (which
is the LPD lpr).

I have some reason to suspect a bug in my present emacs
because on startup I get a
"GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server" error.
I've recompiled - before my original post - emacs and gconf.
I hesitate to reinstall _all_ other ports because the emacs printing
package is the only thing which does not work.

In fact, I'm waiting now for Rasmus who will hopefully reply to my
previous post...

Mit besten Grüßen,
