There's been a thread about this recently (broken cups in sid).
The KDE guys know about this but I believe the maintainer has been ill,
but is back now.
Solutions are to use the libcupsys2 from testing or if you feel up to
it, compile kdelibs4 against the lastest libcupsys-dev package.

Otherwise just wait for the new packages to be uploaded and make do
without either KDE or cups printing (and the latest Gnome)
