Description of problem:
printconf does not start. The reason is line 190 in
        if l.startswith (" link currently points to"):

Running /usr/sbin/alternatives with de_DE@euro as LANG produces this
result however:
 Link verweist auf /usr/bin/lpr.cups

This should be fixed to work under all locales.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set de_DE@euro as locale
2. Call printconf

Actual Results:  [root@icotanis root]# printconf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf", line 9, in ?
    import queueTree
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 945, in ?
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 102, in __init__
    if cups_import.import_needed ():
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/cups_import.py", line 200, in
    which = which_spooler ()
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/cups_import.py", line 195, in
    return which
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'which' referenced before assignment

Expected Results:  printer configuration should start under all locales.

Additional info:

Workaround, which will start the configuration (albeit in english
[root@icotanis root]# export LANG=en_US
[root@icotanis root]# printconf
