I have to install foomatic (and pnm2ppa) only in a different BLFS 7.4 system
that uses an old HP 722 printer not supported by hplip. I have been using
that old printer with BLFS for a long time. For the newer all-in-one printer
using hplip, I experimented a long time with various build configurations
(see the hplip instructions). In the end, I chose the default configuration
(for dynamic PPDs). No problems (for me, at least).
