This isn't a bug. It's just a "hello" to let you know about an 
interopability problem that crops up in wolverine because of the 
introduction of printconf.

The GNUlpr project (sponsored in part by HP) is intended to give better 
control of HP (and other) printers, especially Postscript printers, and to 
support printer detection and network-attached printers.

Their version of printtool has a problem with the addition of 
the "include" line in /etc/printcap. Specifically, it chokes and dies.

I'm also submitting this to those folks, and I'll be submitting a patch to 
them to handle the include statement.

I'm going to immediately change this to NOTABUG, but I wanted to get into 
the database so it's recorded for posterity.
