I know that, since my printer speaks Postscript, I don't need CUPS.
But some of the ports I'm installing want to install CUPS as a
dependency. The first one I happened across was java/jdk16, but I'd
be surprised if there weren't more.
Just as an information: Gimp (Gutenprint) installs CUPS, allthough I
already have apsfilter (HP Laserjet 4000 PCL). When printing, Gimp
still tries to "connect to server" (lpstat).
Ah, I didn't know that. It would be nice if they didn't assume... well,
But I think it's possible to delete CUPS from the system after
JDK is compiled successfully: CUPS isn't listed in RUN_DEPENDS
so it doesn't seem to be required for running JDK / Java.
That seems like a reasonable workaround, being that I'm lazy and all :^)
