Revert fix for CVE-2017-8291, it has build issues :(
Apparently our base ghostscript-gpl is too old for the fix.

Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Bump PKGREVISION on packages depending on CUPS

This should be the last part of the renaming operation for print/cups to
print/cups-base.

Rationale: packages depending on CUPS but not relying on a functional
printing setup only need to depend on print/cups-base (equivalent to the
former print/cups). The new print/cups now depends on print/cups-base
and on print/cups-filters, thus directly providing a functional printing
setup. This bump reflects this change of dependency.

Log message:
Update dependencies on print/cups to print/cups-base

This is with the notable exception of meta-pkgs/desktop-gnome, which I
believe implies a fully functional cups.

This is still missing revision bumps - I'll be right there (first time I
am doing this on so many packages at a time).
