RedHat has turned on secure mode in dvips (by a setting in dvips's config.ps)
to fix a security problem in the print filter despite the following facts:
  - printing dvi files to lpr does not work if the file references eps
    graphics from the user's directory (so in fact, it does not make
    much sense to have this support in the print filter)
  - the dvips version is broken because secure mode cannot be turned
    on via commandline option
  - secure mode also affects the output pipe specified in the config file

The last two bugs are fixed in teTeX-2.0's dvips (dvips(k) 5.92b).
