That does not sound like the standard GNOME/Gtk/Evolution dialog so it's
likely something specific to your distribution.
It is not a 'distribution'; Evo is compiled out of the sources on top of
FreeBSD and KDE 3.5.10;
Yes, sure, but what Andre is saying is that the print dialogue box is
not constructed by Evolution - it just requests that a print dialogue
box be displayed.  None of the print dialogues I've seen displayed for
Evolution under Gnome give you the option of providing a command line
for printing.

I remember such a print dialog, vaguely, from *ages* ago when you'd have
to enter things like "lpr -Pmyprinter".  I thought those type of dialog
predated CUPS as there was no reliable way to enumerate printers.

I think the issue is "compiled out of the sources"; but compiled on what
stack and with what options?   My advice is *DO NOT DO THAT*.  Compiling
a modern DE and applications is very non-trivial and not something that
can be accomplished *successfully* off-the-cuff.

Perhaps you built the GNOME libraries without CUPS support?  So that's a
mistake about three or four layers down from Evolution  [libgnomeprint?]
