Default lpd printing in Current

Network printing broke in 5.2current about 2-3 months ago and I rode with it on the assumption that it would be fixed over a couple of upgrade cycles.

I think the error has something to do with detecting the Trendnet TE100-P1P print server.
Bear$ lpc status all
	queuing is enabled
	printing is enabled
	1 entry in spool area
	waiting for 9100@ to come up
	queuing is enabled
	printing is enabled
	cannot examine spool directory
I was using apsfilter and have also tried a ghostscript filter and a foomatic filter - all wait on 9100@ to come up.

I briefly had trouble with printing *pdf files which went away with an upgrade. My last upgrade:
OpenBSD 5.2-current (GENERIC.MP) #2: Mon Dec 10 18:39:29 MST 2012

I really like the simplicity of lpr and would like to fix it rather then change over to cups.

Thanks in advance for any insights
