Well, the question was more a general one ;) because I was not sure if
explicitly depending on one specific printing frontend is a good idea.
Nevertheless, I meanwhile think that this specific issue has a different
cause: it seems that the Qt runtime dynamically loads "libcups.so",
which is of course only available when the corresponding -dev package
is installed (I could reproduce the originally reported issue today after
a reboot). Manually creating the dev link from libcups.so.2 to libcups.so
then worked around the problem ...
