Building cups-lpr

Given I have poudriere setup and working how do I get a local copy of cups-lpr? The references that I have found imply that this is part of the cups package, but I do not find it on my system even though cups is installed. I have looked at the options set on the cups port pkg and I do not see anything that looks like one to build cups-lpr?

How does one get this utility for FreeBSD?

Sigh... thanks. However, there is no man page. Is the --help output the only documentation from FreeBSD.

I evidently have a problem reading sorted lists. However, lpr-cups is not listed by man -k cups. Linux has a man page for it, FreeBSD evidently does not.

The original issue was solved using a different approach emplying gpcl6 and socat.

I found cups-lpd(8), but it says this is depreciated. Also, this is for using CUPS over LPD. What you're looking for may be different.

Also, when using man -k, |grep may be helpful.

You seem to have found what you're looking for.

/usr/local/bin # ls -l lpr-cups
lpr-cups@ -> lpr

CUPS has its own lpr, which is different than the lpr for LPD in base.

/usr/ports/print/cups/pkg-plist
Code:
man/man1/lp.1.gz
man/man1/lpoptions.1.gz
man/man1/lpq.1.gz
man/man1/lpr.1.gz
man/man1/lprm.1.gz
man/man1/lpstat.1.gz
I tried to use the man command, but it seems to reference the one in base.
