I was hoping, these problems would go away after the recent rework of
cups ports, but it seems, it only got worse. Not just AVAHI, DBUS, and
X11 can lead to a circular dependency during a portupgrade.
Also, cups-filters is required for something as simple as printing a
text/plain, but conflicts with foomatic-filters -- which provides
support for additional printers.
If someone found the time and the energy to rework cups-ports, why are
these problems still remaining?
