Thanks everyone for the ghostscript suggestions
My low tech fix is:

Install Ghostscript.
Setup a standard print queue to the PCL printer
create a small shell script to be called by the Star Office print system
(Hit connect in printer setup)
hey presto it works.

My small script:

export GS_LIB
rm /tmp/testout
cat - > /tmp/testout
rm /tmp/testout1
cat /tmp/testout |/usr/local/bin/gs -sDEVICE=lj5mono
lp -d lex /tmp/testout1
