Regarding step 8 --
It's a bad idea to put /usr/local/bin ahead of /usr/bin in your path. It can make it easier to trojan your system -- a rogue program (or person) could slip a script named "ls" in your /usr/local/bin and "hijack" your commands. Granted, this would require permission... but people tend to be a lot more lax about /usr/local.
Also, it could cause you to execute the wrong version of a command if you have more than one version installed.
A better Step 8 would be:
8a. Move all of the lpr-related binaries out of /usr/bin into a new directory that is not in the normal execution path. You may want to tar up the directory.
8b. Edit /etc/make.conf and uncomment the line that contains "NO_LPR=true". This will prevent make from installing the lpr components when you rebuild the system from source.
