A fixup function from /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd in LPRng-3.6.22-5 does not
seem to be doing anything in particular (it does change a time stamp
on its input files).  I am a bit at loss what it was supposed to be
doing.  Something of that sort?

  perl -pi -e 's/\\\s*$/\n/,s/:\s*$/\n/ unless /^\s*#/' input_file

Not that not running that harms anything, apparently.
