Thank you *very* much for your help Warren.  It turned out something
was still wrong.  I tried the CUPS install, and apparently found
something right, because I managed to get a test page printed from the
web interface to CUPS.  Looked pretty darn good actually.

The printcap file was automatically generated from the web management
input (http://localhost:631) which was pretty easy.  The only thing in
the printcap other than comments was

Once I got cups-lpr installed, it works fine.  Now the tricky part is
remembering the path to the cups version.  I can live with that.

Thanks again.
