I was having problems printing from KDE, so I used the ports to download and
install 'lprng' as well as the 'lprngtool'. The printing problem was solved.
However, a new problem has arisen.

Upon boot up I receive the following error message:

Local package initialization:
Starting Dr. Web daemon...
Fatal error - Cannot bind to lpd port '515'
I have no idea why this is happening.

Probably this means that you have the system lpd running instead of the one that lprng presumably wants to run. See if you have a lpd_enable="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf.

In addition, when I attempt to run the
'lprngtool' script from within KDE, I receive the following error message:

Error executing command 'lpq -a -s'
lpq: illegal option -- s
usage: lpq [-a] [-l] [-Pprinter] [user ...] [job ...]

Again, probably trying to run the system lpq command (/usr/bin/lpq) rather than the one that was installed in a different directory by lprng.
