Thanks for the ideas, everyone!
The suggestions were as follows:
1) Use the "-s" option with the lpr command to avoid spooling
to the disk. It creates a symbolic link to the data files
instead of trying to copy them. This didn't work in my
situation for at least two reasons...
First, the printer is on a remote machine, and the "-s"
option only works when the printer is connected locally.
Second, the print server is running Solaris 2.4, and I've
read the man pages for all of the print commands I can
think of on that machine, and none of them have an option
similar to the "-s" on SunOS 4.x machines. (Please let me
know if I'm in error on this one - I'd love to find a way
to use it!)
2) Ensure that all hosts in the print route contain the "mx#0"
option in their /etc/printcap. Well, all of our SunOS
machines have this entry, and still our HP LJ connected to
one of these machines truncates to 1MB. As for the Solaris
machine, I have yet to find a similar required entry. ( I'm
still reading man pages for this one...)
So, at our location we still have a 1MB limit! But thanks for the
info on the above - we'll continue with our quest to find a solution
to our situation, and will post any answers we stumble across...
