"WARNING:", says /etc/rc.  "$cupsd not set properly".  Indeed, say I; it's not
set at all, nor is there an entry for it in /etc/default/rc.conf, nor in
/usr/src/etc/default/rc.conf.  Hmm; CUPS appears to be used in pkgsrc.  Since
I started this with no idea of what it is, I'm assuming it's a dependancy for
something... but I can't figure out what.

Can anyone suggest what might have wanted to install CUPS?  A snippet of
pkg_info output is included, in case it is informative:

lha-114f            Archive files using LZW compression (.lzh files)
openslp-1.0.2       Open-source implementation of the Service Location Protocol
cups-       Common UNIX Printing System
libxml2-2.4.10nb1   Xml parser library for GNOME
pcre-3.4            Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library
usbutil-0.4         USB developer utilities
teTeX-bin-1.0.7nb1  TeX distribution for UNIX compatible systems - executables
teTeX-1.0.7nb1      Thomas Esser's TeX distribution for UNIX compatible systems
xforms-0.88nb1      Graphical user interface toolkit for X Window System
lyx-         Graphical frontend for LaTeX (nearly WYSIWYG)

My vague thinking is that maybe lynx or tetex somehow implied cups - but I
can't find any "DEPENDS" lines in Makefiles that suggest it.
