Probably. I messed around a bit with the settings in about:config.
Some settings I have now:
print.postscript.cups.enabled false [AFAIK not a default
setting; you have to create it]
Most of these about:config settings related to printing do not
seem to do anything, though. What do you mean by "the appropriate
stuff in /usr/local"? "make install" as root takes care of that.
"make uninstall" undoes the changes, useful for testing.
