all CUPS filters not relevant for Mac OS X are discontinued in the CUPS

With these filters I have joined the filters written for the PDF

to have one upstream location for all CUPS filters needed for using CUPS 
with Linux (and any other non-Mac-OS-X operating system).

This package will be required for use of CUPS 1.6.x or later. For CUPS 
1.5.x and older it is optional and highly recommended to use a PDF-based 
printing workflow (for 1.5.x or older of all filters provided by both 
CUPS and cups-filters the version of cups-filters should be used).

The development of cups-filters is tracked via BZR on
