I have very few experience with CUPS (prefer apsfilter or PS),
but as far as I understood, the printcap file is altered
every time a printer is changed. So when you remove the
existing printer and create it again, all files should be
regenerated, both the /etc/printcap file as well as the
files in the /usr/local/etc/cups subtree.

Deleting and recreating still sounds like the "Windows"
way of doing things, but due to my impression that CUPS
is designed in a way that it appeals this special kind
of users' expectations, this may be the only way to achieve
your goal.
