I just read the bugzilla log and found this so it looks like a fix might 
be forthcoming shortly.

Nice investigative work, Martin :-)

That seems to be the cause indeed. cups-client does not have the same 
options as cups-base, the Avahi/mDNSResponder-related arguments are not 
passed to the configure script so the port ends up picking Avahi 
automatically if it happens to be present on the system. After rebuilding 
cups-client with avahi-app installed here I was finally able to reproduce 
the problem.

Thanks for the info Kurt.
