I just printed a google map yesterday with no problem using firefox and
cups with an up-to-date sarge.  It works fine "out-of-the-box."

Here's what's installed for cups:

~$ dpkg -l |grep cups
ii  cups-pdf       1.7.0a-1       PDF printer for CUPS
ii  cupsys         1.1.23-7       Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - server
ii  cupsys-bsd     1.1.23-7       Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - BSD
ii  cupsys-client  1.1.23-7       Common UNIX Printing System(tm) -
client pro
ii  gnome-cups-man 0.25-2.1       CUPS printer admin tool for GNOME
ii  libcupsimage2  1.1.23-7       Common UNIX Printing System(tm) -
image libs
ii  libcupsys2-gnu 1.1.23-7       Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs
ii  libgnomecups1. 0.1.14-1       GNOME library for CUPS interaction
ii  libgnomecupsui 0.25-2.1       UI extensions to libgnomecups

Hope this can help.
