"ELF 32-bit LSB shared object" or 'pkg_info -g LPRng\*' says that the
checksum on the file is incorrect then I'd recommend deleting (use
pkg_delete(1)) and reinstalling the LPRng port --- preferably by using
cvsup(1) to grab an up-to-date copy of the ports tree, and then doing
a 'make install' in /usr/ports/sysutils/LPRng

If the file is there and seems to be OK, then don't go
fiddling with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or other environment variables.  All
you need to do is run:

    ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib

*once* and that shared library should then be found forever after.
