Take a look at the Printbill program (I forget who it is written by), but
it has a feature that bypasses it's billing system and just logs who printed
and how much.  It's a perl filter that would be called from the
/etc/printcap file.

Just search for "Printbill" on google.

One side note: It seems that the "latest" release at the time that I worked
on it had some coding that didn't work right - I had to fix some things in
addition to the customization that we needed for our purposes.
