Thanks for the info. I've solved the issue and changed cups as discussed 
by adding poppler to its dependency and setting --with-pdftops=pdftops [1].

I took the opportunity and adopted/updated the currently unmaintained poppler
ports, which are now poppler, poppler-data, poppler-glib and poppler-qt4.

Hope this works well and fits our needs. Please report any problems.

best regards
