confused... lpr/ lpr-cups

on my Slackware box I used to print using the command "lpr-cups".

But now when I use gentoo, this command is simply not available. I just have "lpr".

Does anyone know where I can get lpr-cups from, (the program itself)?

well, I cant print a thing right now :(

Thanks in advance,

On Slackware the whole printing thing depends on whether cups or lprng was installed _last_. If cups was installed last, like it is on my machine, then lpr is a symlink to lpr-cups. Question is, on Gentoo are you using cups or something else?
