The version of cups provided in Lenny uses a compatibility layer of
Avahi (package libavahi-compat-libdnssd1).
Therefore, Avahi is complaining/suggesting the developer [of cups], to
use avahi libraries directly.
FYI, this has been fixed in the version of cups in Testing (it now uses
Avahi's native library: "libavahi-client3")
