Well, one way to do it would be to
edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/hl5140lpr.postrm.

you could just stick:

exit 0

at the top of the script, or you could be a bit more surgical and
comment out the offending line or block of code that requires the
existance of /etc/init.d/lpd.

Alternatively, you could create a the file it is looking for:

# touch /etc/init.d/lpd

None of these are real beautiful solutions, but they should get the
package uninstalled for you.

hope that helps.
