liblpr.so.0 should have been installed in /usr/local/lib by the LPRng package. If it isn't there, or file(1) doesn't recognise it as an "ELF 32-bit LSB shared object" or 'pkg_info -g LPRng\*' says that the checksum on the file is incorrect then I'd recommend deleting (use pkg_delete(1)) and reinstalling the LPRng port --- preferably by using cvsup(1) to grab an up-to-date copy of the ports tree, and then doing a 'make install' in /usr/ports/sysutils/LPRng If the liblpr.so.0 file is there and seems to be OK, then don't go fiddling with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or other environment variables. All you need to do is run: ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib *once* and that shared library should then be found forever after.
