Printer configuration utility

I've been spending most of this evening working on a printer config tool for Debian, tentatively called foomatic-gui. As the name suggests, it's designed to use foomatic; basically, it's just a cute frontend to foomatic-configure. I think some autodetection should be possible; however, discover doesn't detect printers, so I may have to do it manually.

I also tried to hack together a new Phoenix+Xft build, but the 20021125 build fails to start due to a missing libc6 symbol; weird.
