You have two options:

1.  Update to the rawhide dvips or TeX package (the latest stuff
    from redhat).  Then, use -R0 on the command line.

2.  Use dvips to generate a PostScript file (with -o) and then
    lpr it yourself.  You can of course trivially build a shell
    script to do this.

The reason is because RedHat disabled command execution from dvips
so dvips can't execute lpr, as a security fix, but forgot to make
sure that it could be reenabled from the command line, which it
can't from the old version of dvips they are using.
