It's not going to solve your problem, though.

Here's the important bit of that page:
"Red Hat includes the checkconfig & service utilities to help you manage
your start up scripts and save you a lot of typing."
You're running Debian, not RedHat ;->
Essentially, you're barking up the wrong tree here. You don't need to
compile anything because you've just installed it - the whole point of the
package management system is so that you don't have to compile the
software yourself and fight with it to get it to compile OK. You need to
go through the HP document and find what the next step is. I have a
suspicion that the steps you are following are:
tar xzvf hplip-0.8.x.tar.gz
So, you just need to try to do the /etc/init.d/hplip restart. After that,
you need to restart cupsd to pick up the new drivers (/etc/init.d/cupsys
restart). You should then be able to go into the web interface and
configure the printer with the HP drivers.
