Hi Aryeh,

I can't tell you about the error, but:

%pkg_info | grep cups
cups-base-1.3.3     Common UNIX Printing System
cups-pstoraster-8.15.4_1 Postscript interpreter for CUPS printing to 
non-PS printers

Looks like the same versions. They do build ok. Perhaps a "make clean 
distclean" will shake out the bugs?

'Remote execution' is interesting. Do you use some sort of load balancer?
