Description of problem:
During the standard cron job cron.weekly the script makewhatis is
executed. This generates the error message:

zcat: ./cancel.1.gz: No such file or directory

This also can be reproduces with the command "makewhatis -c".

The file ./cancel.1.gz appears to refer to
usr/share/man/man1/cancel.1.gz which is symlinked to
/etc/alternatives/print-cancelman which is symlinked to
/usr/share/man/man1/cancel-cups.1.gz. This last file is not there.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run makewhatis -w

Actual Results:  Error:
zcat: ./cancel.1.gz: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  No message

The problem is caused after updating from cups-1.1.17-13.3.13.i386.rpm
to  cups-1.1.17-13.3.16.i386.rpm.

The new RPM does not include the /usr/share/man/man1/cancel-cups.1.gz
 file.  The old one did.

As such, you should be able to work around the problem by either
. extracting the file from the old RPM, (I'd love an  rpm2tar command
- rpm2cpio is annoying - cpio is just painful)    or

. just copying some other manual in its place, which will make 
makewhatis stop whining.  you could use the french manual, which for
some strange reason is included in the cups RPM. along with french
templates etc..  (why!?)
