I'm looking for something similar to How to convert a 1 page PDF to a 2 page per sheet PDF?, but that works like LPR instead of a PDF file converter. This institution has a custom version of lpr that has such an option [ link ]; are there any more standard options?

The lpr that comes with CUPS recognizes the number-up option. Just combine it with CUPS-PDF.
