I usually use pdftops (part of the xpdf-utils package) to convert to
PostScript and psselect (part of the psutils package) to separate odd
and even pages. This can all be done in a pipe without having to store
intermittent files:

    pdftops inputfile.pdf - | psselect -o | lpr    # print odd pages
    pdftops inputfile.pdf - | psselect -e | lpr    # print even pages
