A lot of programs print using lpr.
So I think they make a temp file in ps and call lpr to print it.
So you can move your real lpr, and make a cript (called lpr) that
interpretes all parameters passed to lpr, to understand which is the
file to print.

Sometime files are in /var/spool.

Try and let me know,
I'm interested.
