If you do not believe I've configured it as you suggested/requested, 
that's your problem. If you want it redone, contact me off-list and I'll 
provide my mailing address so you can come do it yourself.

As for not showing a structured way to nail down the problem, I'm not 
sure what else to do. I've provided the logs in their entirety. I've 
shown where I used gnome-cups-manager to try and configure it, I - in a 
very lengthy (mostly due to log file entries) post - went step by step 
trying to do it several ways (including using the web interface). What 
more do you want?

I even reinstalled gnutls to no avail. The next step is to rebuild all 
the cups related ports with gnutls disabled.

Yours in Christ,
