lprng conflicts with lpr, so lpr gets removed when lprng is installed.

But removing lpr means:
- /etc/init.d/lpd remains
- `update-rc.d lpd remove >/dev/null' is not run

IMHO this should be changed in such cases:
- run `update-rc.d -f lpd remove >/dev/null' on remove and purge

(-f means that update-rc.d even when /etc/init.d/ exists)

I think this would solve the problem.
