Bug#466964: LPD doesn't listen on port 515

Indeed lprng 3.8.A~rc2-1 comes build with --disable-remote which
disables listening on port 515 by default. You have to enable it
again with setting


in lpd.conf to get it back.

Craig, it looks like the Debian lprng package does not even contain the
ChangeLog file, but only the old CHANGES files shipped as changelog.gz
