libgnomecups-devel != libcups-devel 

since your lib names are "devel" not "dev" I'm assuming you're using
Debian (please always specify this in mailing list posts)

The README file should've directed you to BUILDING, which has a section
on required packages for Debian. One of those was libcupsys2-dev . You
might want to read over those two files, anyway.

You'll be missing a lot of printing functionality, though.
