This one is about Type 1 fonts under Linux not recognized without afms present
and it seems a little uncertain if that's the MacOSX issue as well

The old add-fonts stuff in spadmin wouldn't have had any effect on
either of those two issues.

I don't see a connection between Type1 fonts not being recognized on
MacOSX and CUPS printing. Either way spadmin wouldn't help.
