	Your configure should fail if cups/cups.h is not included:

dnl check for cups support
dnl ===================================================================
if test "$test_cups" = "yes"; then
    AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether cups support is present])
    AC_CHECK_LIB(cups, cupsPrintFiles)
    if test "$ac_cv_lib_cups_cupsPrintFiles" != "yes" -a "$ac_cv_header_cups_cups_h" != "yes"; then
        AC_MSG_ERROR([Could not find CUPS. Install libcupsys2-dev or cups???-devel.])

	Can you provide some more details on exactly what you're trying to
compile ? and what the error is ? Really - compiling OO.o is not
advisable ;-) you would prolly do better with a root cause analysis than
trying to do that. What is the bug ?
