I am using CUPS with my HP Laserjet 8150DN and I have no trouble printing #10 envelopes in LO. So, it is possible. "pstoraster" is a printer driver that converts Postscript to rastor, the printer page. That implies that you are not using the Laserjet's Postscript emulation (missing option?), which would not need the pstoraster conversion. CUPS has several driver options to select from, such as Foomatic, Gutenprint, or in my printer's case, a CUPS driver ("HP Laserjet 8150 Series Postscript (en)"). You may try adding the same printer as a different name using different drivers to experiment with. I see on my Slackware 12.2 Linux CUPS that there are only Gutenprint or Foomatic drivers for the LJ5. However, HP has produced more then one model 5 over the years, so I am not sure which one you have. Here is a place I go for Linux printer information:

When I select the HP Laserjet 5, the result says it "works perfectly". It also says you should be using the "hplip" (HP Linux Imaging and Printing) driver.
Hope this helps.

Running LO- on Slackware-13.1. The envelope template was built for
a COM10 size envelope in 2003 using whatever version of OO.o was then
current. Worked fine then; hasn't since OO.o was supplanted by LO. Time to
fix this problem.

The page size is set for a COM10 US business envelope. When I try printing
it (paper size is commercial 10 and paper orientation is landscape mode),
the HP LaserJet 5 sits with nothing to print. When I check the CUPS jobs tab
I see this error message: "/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster failed".

If I print to a disk file I can print the resulting .pdf to a letter size
page, but not to an envelope.

  Any thoughts on this?
