Qt and printer selection

Hello everyone,

i compiled my application using the Qt SDK for X11. The problem I'm facing is, the printer setup dialog only shows me print to pdf and ps.
The user can print using lp on the command line.
The user can print in other applications like kwrite with the attached printer (it shows up in the select box)

I read in older posts on the net that it could be possible that qt was compiled without CUPS support, but considering CUPS is the default for X11 according to the documentation it would be rather strange for it to be left out.
Any suggestions?
Is there a list of configure options used for the SDK files?
