In fact xfprint can autodetect if a2ps is installed at run time.
However, there would then just be a lot less options available for
people running it, and not any indication why. ;( 
Since we don't have anything like a "Suggests:" in rpm, I think it's
best that we require a2ps so all the options are available to users. 

We could look at changing to paps or something, but that should
probibly be done upstream. I see that there are some of the translation
files that talk about a2ps, so they would all need to be retranslated
if another package was used. ;(
