Description: Xprint - the X11 print system from xprint.org (binary)
 "Xprint" is an advanced printing system which enables X11 applications
 to use devices like printers, FAX or create documents in formats like
 PostScript, PDF, PCL, etc.
 This package provides Xprt, the Xprint server compiled from
 xprint.mozdev.org.  This version supersedes the version from XFree86
 (package xprt), which is buggy and does not work with mozilla.  This version
 provides full support for printing from mozilla, including non-latin
 characters and MathML. TrueType fonts are supported.
