Try adding an rp entry (remote printer, or print queue name):

  lp:\
       :sh:\
       :rm=192.168.1.101:rp=raw:\
       :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:

That may get the 5si/mx to see it; I'm not sure about the behavior when
no print queue name is specified.

I think the PJL sequence is something like escape %12345!, but you
should first check the printer menus to see if it's set to auto-detect
the print job type or just interpret them all as PCL.
