Screen shot of the print-configuration -- without a single printer to choose from

Problem description: 

When I wanted to print a document, LO told me, "there is no default printer configured".

Though LO is compiled with CUPS support, I am not using CUPS -- and not running the local cups-daemon. I just want to print to the good old lpd.

This used to work -- and still works with all of my other applications (lyx, all of the browsers, thunderbird).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select File->Print
2. Be asked to configure default printer.
3. Wonder, why the "lp" is not on the list.

Current behavior:
lp is not offered as an option

Expected behavior:
Printing to local lpd (with all printers known to the daemon) be offered.
Operating System: BSD
Version: rc

Actually, it seems, the problem started even earlier. According to this thread:

lpd-printing disappeared as early as, but I could not find any bug-reports (even closed ones) with "lpd" in the Summary...

Never confirmed by QA.
Please test with 4.4.x.

Change to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
