[Grunt]  Okay, I've got it working now.

I had to specify the path of the CUPS lp command (/usr/local/bin).  Because,

buildworld hasn't just happened once, but several times.

It prints, but the printer has duplex capability that I only want to
use most (not all) of the time.  That's really the only issue.
