Just checked again. Even though I did not have CUPS_OVERWRITE_BASE=YES
in /etc/make.conf when installing cups, I renamed the system's lp*
tools so those of CUPS are being used:

	% which lpq lpr lprm lp
	/usr/local/bin/lpq
	/usr/local/bin/lpr
	/usr/local/bin/lprm
	/usr/local/bin/lp

The system's tools are out of scope now.

	% ls /usr/bin/lp*
	/usr/bin/lp.bsd
	/usr/bin/lpq.bsd
	/usr/bin/lpr.bsd
	/usr/bin/lprm.bsd

As I made sure from various programs, CUPS _can_ actually print.
It just doesn't print from Opera.
