The "cups" package installed startup files in "/etc/rc.d" automatically.
There is AFAIK *no* package which doesn't so. The "apache", "squid"
and "openssh" at least don't do this. It should be up to the administrator
of the system to install startup scripts in that directory.

Install the KDE 2 packages, reboot your system and wonder why it complains
about "$cupsd" not being set.

1.) Don't install "cupsd" in "/etc/rc.d" automatically.
2.) Remove all dependences on "cups" e.g. in the KDE 2 packages
