[Xprint] How to disable Xprint for Firebird on Solaris

I've installed a binary build of Firebird 0.7 on Solaris and I can't print 
from it because it insists on using Xprint which isn't installed. Is there not 
some way to tell Firebird not to use Xprint? I've had a look at the unix.js 
file under defaults but I can't see anything that looks like it'll do the job.
I know I could recompile Firebird from source specifying --disable-xprint, but 
there's got to be an easier way. Doesn't there?
