Build Unix printer management even when CUPS isn't enabled

Whilst it is possible to build libreoffice without CUPS, doing so breaks printing - the print menu is still displayed but there is no underlying printer manager.  This is a regression from previous libreoffice versions.

The attached 3 patches restore normal print operation.

Note that the spadmin program, that does printer administration (adding and removing printers) has been deleted upstream so it's now necessary to manually edit ${LOCALBASE}/lib/libreoffice/share/psprint/psprint.conf and add PPD files to the drivers subdirectory.

Enable preceeding patches when CUPS not enabled.

Note that the first two (xpatch-*) attachments are new patches to add to editors/libreoffice/files, rather that patches to the ports tree.

Is this still relevant?

Hi Peter, cloud you check if this is still working for 6.0.2 and I somehow feel that this might need to be changed in upstream.
