Hi a.l.e, thank you for your suggestion! I will try :-)

In the meantime, looking at the code i have found that inside the
config.h file (generated by cmake) there is this:

/* #undef HAVE_CUPS */

Which obviously is disabled by " /* */ ".
#undef HAVE_CUPS is also present in win-config.h, and assuming the
fact that Windows don't uses/have CUPS, #undef HAVE_CUPS should
definitely disable cups! The only fact is that i cannot edit config.h
because is generated/resetted every time that i run cmake..

For me is enough to have only the pdf export :-)

Best regards,
