cups build-depends on libcupsfilters-dev (from cups-filters) and
cups-filters build-depends on libcups2-dev (from cups). This means that
in a port bootstrap neither of these package can be built first.

This patch allows the untangling of this curcular build-dependency by
allowing cups to honour the 'nocheck' build-option which skips tests.
(recommended in

Because cups only need cups-filters for the test, this is all that is needed.

A later patch will supply annotations to the Build-Depends, allowing
full automation, but that is not yet suitable for the archive. Having
the mechanism present in the rules file is still very useful to porters.
(I just used it for the arm64 bootstrap).
