Removing those packages should not have made a difference. Maybe all you
needed was a restart.
I don't think you need those apple.* files. URF support is already included
Something else you might want to check in /usr/local/etc/cups is if there
are any differences between configurations files and their corresponding
*.sample file and if those differences still make sense.
