Ok. It seems wrong indeed that xfprint4 looks at the printcap file
in /usr/etc. I've built a new package wich should look at the correct
place, but I can't test it as I don't have a printer.

You seem to use i386 arch, and I can't build for this arch currently,
but I can provide you a .dsc link so you can build it, test it and
report back.

Is this doable for you?
