[OT] lprng bad config

This is not sparc-specific, but this is the only debian-mailinglist
I read. 

Does anyone know why in lprng uses ports 512-1023 per default?

In /etc/lprng/lpd.conf it reads:
#   default originate_port=512 1023 (STRING)                                    

Whereas man lpd.conf states:

    "Note that RFC1179 specifies that requests
     must originate from ports in the range 721-731."

Was this deliberately changed? Its not a good idea, and it stopped 
our printer dead because of firewalling.
