No, GARNOME installs perfectly for me without any modifications, especially
with regards to CUPS. Of course, I install as me, to ~/garnome. Nothing is
written to /usr.
I wouldn't release it if that weren't the case! :-)
So, that's the problem. No one's been able to explain why the CUPS stuff
happens, and how to disable it for *everyone*.
