gutenprint cyclic gimp-gutenprint dependency

bootstrapping gutenprint with portmaster currently fails if I enable
gimp-gutenprint in the configure dialog, because gutenprint and
gimp-gutenprint are mutually dependent in that case.

I've now removed the gimp-gutenprint dependency from gutenprint and am
installing it manually, but it would be nice if bootstrapping could

To try this out, just remove all *gutenprint* packages, then run "make
config" in the gutenprint directory, enable all options, and try
portmaster -p print/gutenprint and see it get into a gimp-gutenprint
depends on gutenprint depends on gimp-gutenprint infinite recursion.

Still, thanks for the past work on those packages.

Best regards and happy Easter (if you care),
