Well, I investigated a little further.  Another list reader pointed me to
the fact that there might be a newer version available.  I took a look,
and I was using lpr_5.9-13 and a lpr_5.9-13.1 was available.  FTP'd it,
unpacked, still same problem.

So I grabbed the source, and diff files.  It appears that a problem with
'canonizing hostname' (whatever that means?) was fixed in July, and the
most recent release fixes a buffer overflow security bug.

At any rate, I'm still in the dark.  My problem, for those who havent
followed is the following error:

lpr: unable to get official name for local machine

Any help is still appreciated.
