missing entry in /etc/conf.modules results in no printer device being found

I noticed that during installation a port was not found for
my printer. Thinking this was odd--perhaps a problem with
the install routine--I ran printtool after installation. I
had the same thing. Then I checked the /etc/conf.modules and
noticed that these lines were missing:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378,0x278 irq=7,auto
With these lines my printer port is detected.
alias for parport_lowlevel added - irq and io should be detected.
