No, I meant to use a personal homebrew in /usr/local/bin/print, but
had not brought it over from the old install. It's based on
enscript(1), and works properly now.
I was just remarking that this behavior seems unprofessional,
considering that print(1) is installed by default, and "print" is a
pretty natural thing for someone to try. Seems like the sort of thing
that should be improved.
