--In your setup.hint, you need to include "gawk fileutils sh-utils"
in the requirements (these are required by the scripts).
--Your LPRng src archive is .tgz instead of .tar.bz2, and appears to be
an uncompressed tar archive.
In the LPRng binary package:
--All your files start with ./ (e.g., ./usr/bin instead of usr/bin)
and one looks suspicious:
--/usr/doc/Cygwin/LPRng-3.8.19.README doesn't really tell me anything
about the software. This is OK, but it's normal to give some hints.
I personally am somewhat interested in lpr, but I don't have the
time to read through the 25MB of documentation to figure it out.
Surely the workings are a little different on Windows.
It is also customary to put "build requirements" like gcc, etc.
At this point I'm intimidated so I'll let someone more familiar with
things like /etc/printcap to step in.
