I'm not no familiar with the PCL renderer, so I can't help here
immediately. But you've got the possibility to use the AWT renderer and
print directly to a printer. Have a look at the documentation and the
FOPPrintServlet in docs/examples/embedding.

Another possibility is to create a PDF or a PS file and use GhostScript
to convert it to the target printer format (ex. PCL). This will be
rather slow, though. Or you can print a PDF on the command line using
Acrobat Reader. Examples of everything should also be in the mailing
list archive and maybe even in the FAQ.
