Thanks all the same since that actually will solve a lot of other people's problems even though I don't need it.
Maybe you do
now all I need is to get printing to work right out of Opera with CUPS!
'cause it'll probably fix this.
Summary for anyone following along:
1) Choose either CUPS or lprng.
2) "removepkg" the one you don't want
3) "upgradepkg --reinstall" the one you do want
4) Enjoy printing that works.
