If you look inside the PPD, you will see which package they came
from.  If you can mail them all to me, I can test here.

It should just skip non-Gutenprint PPDs.  I'm afraid without a log, I
can't do much about it.  If it happens again, please let me know
(under a new bug report, please).

You aren't alone.  This is a problem with the new cupsys package which
was uploaded yesterday.  You can see more in Bugs #343292 and #343251,
including how to fix it.
