My mistake.  The default print command is determined at configure time.
But the RedHat RPMS are built in a sandbox that has only the minimal
configuration needed to build R. This doesn't include the lpr package so
the default print command is null. I will fix this in the next RPM
release, but right now I am upgrading to FC3.
