Yeah, sorry about that. I wrote that at a time where I thought make.conf 
couldn't override make.defaults. Was probably some problem with emerge 
caching the flags, as it started working properly after a few reboots.

But still, why is cups added in the very basic profiles? I'm not 
debating the usefulness of printing support in desktop computers, I'm 
just surprised you found cups useful enough to enable it for _all_ 
profiles, regardless whether it's server or desktop.
Why cups, why not any of the other dozens use flags? Who did decide that 
cups is worthy enough and the others aren't?
