You need to install the cups development package - this has all the header 
files and what not to let you compile stuff against cups.

dop at brain:~$ apt-cache search cups | grep -i devel
libcupsimage2-dev - Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - image development files
libcupsys2-dev - Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - development files
libgimpprint1-dev - Development files for the Gimp-Print library

I suspect you need libcupsys2-dev installed, and possibly 
libcupsimage2-dev as well. Do "apt-get install libcupsys2-dev" as root and 
run configure again to see if it gets any further. If not, do "apt-get 
install libcupsimage2-dev" as well, and that should do it (or at least, 
get you a new error message).

Cheers... Dop.
