I didn't have to do that. Instead, I have the following my smb.conf file:
; The following three lines will allow the available
; printers to be slurped from lpstat.
printing = CUPS
printcap name = lpstat
load printers = yes
comment = All Printers
path = /tmp
browseable = no
public = yes
writable = no
printable = yes
create mode = 0700
; The raw option allows printing from Windows using the
; driver provided by Epson.
; The gs-stp package and a cups-o-matic driver
; for the Epson Stylus 740 are used for local printing.
print command = /usr/bin/lpr -P %p -o raw %s
lpq command = /usr/bin/lpstat -o %p
lprm command = /usr/bin/cancel %p-%j
available = yes
