It probably found /usr/bin/lpr before /usr/pkg/bin/lpr, and didn't use
CUPS. Now the Linux Binary first looks in /emul/linux/usr/bin/lpr, finds
your link and is happy.
The problem is that you have two lpr binaries, and the wrong one is found
first - I guess this is more a pkgsrc problem than a kernel problem.
A workaround is to have /usr/pkg/bin before /usr/bin in $PATH.
