I am using lpr-0.46-0.5.2.  I am trying to print a 16.8Mb file, a large
image for a 2400 DPI color printer.  Even though the file is very large,
it is still a single page of output.  lpr should not be complaining about
files of this size when the printcap has mx=0 in it.

# lpr rjul.ps
lpr: rjul.ps: copy file is too large
# cat /etc/printcap

# REMOTE phaser840
   stuff removed

# rpm -qv lpr

It's mx#0, not mx=0
