I followed the first part of Dop's instructions: 
1) Do "apt-get install libcupsys2-dev" as root.
2) Run configure again to see if it gets any further.

Results:
It appears that, yes, installing libcupsys2-dev did get it further. 

Thanks, it feels like progress.  Here's a summary:

The following summarizes the main differences between the config.log
(Try 1) and config.log (Try 2). (Added lines before and after diffs are
for context only)

Try 1:
configure:21024: checking for cups/cups.h
configure:21031: result: no
configure:21041: error: cannot find cups-devel support
## ---------------- ##
## Cache variables. ##

but...cf with TRY 2

Try 2: 
configure:21024: checking for cups/cups.h
configure:21031: result: yes

*************************************************

Try 1: 
Tried to find "Running config.status" in config.log [not to be found]

but...cf with Try 2:

Try 2:
## Running config.status. ##
## ---------------------- ##

This file was extended by config.status, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59.  Invocation command line was

  CONFIG_FILES    = 
  CONFIG_HEADERS  = 
  CONFIG_LINKS    = 
  CONFIG_COMMANDS = 
  $ ./config.status 

on debian

config.status:713: creating Makefile  
config.status:896: executing depfiles commands
configure:23118: configuring in prnt/hpijs
configure:23235: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr
'--prefix=/usr' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
configure:23240: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for prnt/hpijs

## ---------------- ##
## Cache variables. ##

[I'm confused about this because I thought hpijs was a completely
different driver altogether!]
******************************************************
Try 1: No Makefile created in /hplip-0.9.2

but...

Try 2: Makefile created in /hplip-0.9.2
*******************************************************

Results of 'make' command

Try 1:
# make
make: No targets specified and no Makefiles found. Stop.

Try 2:
$ make
Making all in prnt/hpijs
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/robert/hplip-0.9.2/prnt/hpijs'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'all'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/robert/hplip-0.9.2/prnt/hpijs'
make: [all recursive] Error 1

********************************************************
Try 1:
Initiating a print command results in zero response on the desktop.
Print dialogue box shows HP printer, but no 'Ready' indication. No
response from printer.

Try 2:
Initiating a print command results in appearance of icon of HP printer
in title bar for about 5 secs only. Print dialogue box shows HP printer
and a 'Ready' indication. No response from printer.

Sundry Other Errors the same between Try 1 and Try 2

[above error recurrs for configure 4250 multiple times in Try 1 and in
Try 2]
