Java without CUPS

I know that, since my printer speaks Postscript, I don't need CUPS. But
some of the ports I'm installing want to install CUPS as a dependency.
The first one I happened across was java/jdk16, but I'd be surprised if
there weren't more.
Could it be as simple as
# make -DWITHOUT_CUPS install
? I see no such possibility in either the config options or the Makefile
for jdk16, and google was no help.
It's not like the disk space costs anything nowadays, but I chafe at
installing unneccesary bloat on my system. If it can't be done I'll
deal, but I'd like to stay CUPS-free if possible.
Thanks very much for any insight.
