For now, I'm setting this bug report to "Confirmed/NEW" although I'm not in a position to confirm for real (neither Solaris 8 here, nor NIS nor LPD in use).

Maybe I can even find someone to look at the code in question and at the (semi-)patch sent by the reporter.

However, I do not believe that the LPD print subsystem in KDEPrint will ever see any additional love in the future. LPD is hardly used any more (all Solaris-on-Workstations using customers I know of have switched to CUPS in recent years). Also, a volunteer who some time ago committed himself to implement better LPD/LPRng subsystem support has now disappeared from the scene.
