The problem is that the path is specifically required by CUPS.  More
importantly, the path specified in the standard is the wrong path.
Anyone who delivered foomatic-rip strictly as specified (without
providing it at the /usr/lib/cups/filters location) would likely end up
with a non-working foomatic-rip, at least concerning its most important
use (acting as part of a filter chain for printing documents).
