I just built it and installed it here, but haven't tested it yet.
The weird part is that cups can print its own test pages just fine, 
but everything else I've tried just gets me a full bleed page of 
about 10% grey.  Like enscript is broken somehow.

Not using either of those, in fact they will probably fubar a cups 
installation as it has its own configuration tool available to any 
browser at localhost:631.  And I couldn't see that anything had 
changed when I went thru the cups config last night.  But we'll keep 
plugging along...

Its all encrypted, for either scenario, so its fairly safe, I've been 
doing both for several years now.  Its very convienient to just let 
the bank send the checks to pay your bills.
