Apart from PDEPEND, one change needed as well in cups ebuilds: --with-pdftops pdftops needs to be replaced with --with-pdftops=/usr/bin/pdftops as otherwise it will fail during configure phase (giving absolute path disables autodetection) cups can use either poppler or ghostscript as pdf-to-ps filter, so given the fact that ghostscript is already a dep of cups, maybe --with-pdftops=gs could be used instead to avoid poppler dependency completely, but that's up to cups maintainers to determine whether it's safe/desired. So it's all simple, all this fuzz was unnecessary. Btw, do we still have active printing herd? -- regards MM
