I have had a look on google and the archives and although I have seen 
people with a similar issue I have not been able to find an answer to 
the issue I have.

I am trying to compile the magicolor 2430DL printer dirvers and keep 
running into the following error:

root at lancelot# make
Linking rastertokmlf...
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcups
*** Error code 1

Stop in /root/magicolor2430DL-1.1.0.

Now I have the following cups packages installed (I am using 5.3), what 
am I doing wrong?



root at lancelot# pkg_info | grep cups
