Sure. Step 5 is accomplished by not having a line like lpd_enable=yes in /etc/rc.conf. I had one from when I was using lpd. Step 6 is just 'sudo rm -f /usr/bin/lp?*'. /usr/bin/lp is mildly useful, and will be recreated. There's also a knob to the cups port which lets you override the system default programs, but I'm unsure what it is. A quick grep shows me nothing (likely grepping in the wrong dir). Step 7 is just adding the lines: NO_LPR=yes 6.x and older WITHOUT_LPR=yes 7.x and newer to /etc/make.conf. In 7.x and newer you can add it to /etc/src.conf as well.
