I'd guess you have changed perms in your lpd spool directory. You forgot to mention what OS you are running, but it's going to be /var/spool/lpd or something like it.

Somebody did some chmod's they shouldn't have. The lock files need to have proper perms for the lpd daemon.

Or the lp/lpd programs themselves got changed and are no longer suid correctly..
