For what it's worth, LPRng dropped the check because it puts a severe limit 
on the number of incoming and outgoing print jobs, and many implementations 
(especially DOS/Windows ones) don't restrict ports at all because the whole 
concept of reserved ports is meaningless on them.  There's a good 
discussion of the issues in the LPRng FAQ/HOWTO.
