DESCRIPTION
       cups-config  is  the  CUPS  program configuration utility. It should be
       used by application developers to determine the necessary  command-line

       tion directories for filters, configuration files, and drivers.

       --build

       --cflags

       --datadir

       --help
            Displays the program usage message.

       --image
            When used with --libs, adds the CUPS imaging library to  the  list
            of displayed libraries.

       --ldflags
            Displays the necessary linker options.

       --libs
            Displays the necessary librarys to link to.

            backends are stored.

       --serverroot
            Displays the default CUPS configuration file directory.

       --static
