Printing under Wine - Mission Impossible?

I would say it looks like CUPS support is installed, as I see all of my
printers.  I'm wondering if the builtin driver has been broken in newer
releases?  I find it odd that it hangs the HP4500, requesting a power cycle
of the printer. (code 49 FF02 if you're wondering).  It's complaining about
something it got from postscript.

the results of my grep are exactly what you have, and
yes I believe I have the cups-development package

I have even upgraded to the latest CUPS software from
