[Samba] a question about LPRng

Our host is running Linux 220.127.116.11, with Samba-3.0.20 and LPRng-3.8.28.
Recently we re-compile LPRng and changed the "--with-unix_socket_path" option
from the default /var/run/lprng to somewhere else. Everything seems to work
as we can print from the host as before. However the problem is that all
Windows clients cannot print via Samba queues. The Samba log reads :
>Status Information, attempt 1 of 3:
>sending job 'user at host+770' to queue at localhost
> connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
> cannot open connection to localhost - Connection refused
>Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
>and accepts connections from this host and from non-privileged (>1023) ports
>Waiting 10 seconds before retry
Then we re-compile LPRng again without changing the "unix_socket_path"
value, and the problem goes. We'd like to know if Samba requires LPRng to
use /var/run/lprng invariably ?
