Citing http://localhost:631/overview.html on a system running cupsys:

so I doubt they will include additional PPDs for free, but just give
it a try.

btw: the CD accompanying my Kyocera-Mita FS1020DN contains PPDs for
almost all Kyocera printers I know of (all MIT-licensed), they might
be included as well.
