But is this the Debian way? What will happen when I upgrade lpr package?

So I tweaked as needed (by changing service-name to printer and added
"-l" lpd logging switch).

Then I stopped lpd, added lpd to my /etc/hosts.allow, disabled it from
starting in /etc/init.d/lpd and restarted inetd.

My remote lpq says "waiting for pilchuck to come up".

The server lpr.log says a few times:

 Feb 15 15:36:50 pilchuck lpd[9780]: bind: Address already in use
 Feb 15 15:36:50 pilchuck lpd[9780]: exiting

So it looks like inetd is spawning lpd; the new lpd is trying to bind but
inetd already did.

Any other ideas?
