I thought about this a bit more and in fact we have a file that can sort
of function as configuration file for you, as a minimum you can insert
the -l you need:

Have a look in
of course the version number in the path may vary.

There you will find a section:
        <Item Id="custom">
          <Key Id="Module" Value="" />
          <Option Id="Command" Default="lpr" Type="String" />

If you insert -l behind the lpr on the fourth line, then it will
automatically appear in the dailog.

I cannot test it but you may want to try to add a text like
        <Item Id="fac">
          <Key Id="Module" Value="" />
          <Option Id="Command" Default="lpr -l -Pfac" Type="String" />

immediately following the above custom entry, this will give you another
choice which may (untested!) print using lpr -l -Pfac.

good luck
