CUPS-PDF is a PDF writer backend for CUPS.
It provides a virtual CUPS-PDF printer which produces PDF files
so that application programs which have no built-in support
to "Save as PDF" could print to CUPS-PDF to get a PDF file.

- Work with upstream compliant CUPS 1.4 on all platforms
which means to have a fixed "/usr/lib/cups/" directory
on all platforms (see Novell/Suse Bugzilla bnc#575544).
- Make sure lpadmin talks only to the cupsd on localhost
via the '-h localhost' command line option.
- Removed the test if /var/run/cups/cups.sock is a socket
because the local cupsd may run just as well without it
(only "Listen localhost:631" in cupsd.conf is mandatory).
