	When installing in print/gimp-print-lib I get the following errors (note that /usr is read-only)

	Making install in cups

	I haven't tested it with a writable /usr since the read-only status is specifically to prevent this sort of "littering". The cups directories also don't appear in the PLIST

	"make install" in pkgsrc/print/gimp-print-lib to create directories in /usr/lib.
	Unknown, though removing "cups" from the NONGIMP_SUBDIRS definition in work/gimp-print-4.2.1/src/Makefile allows it to install. Possibly patching this or the corresponding may be all that's needed.
