cupsd: minor nit

Running targeted/enforcing, latest rawhide.

If I 'remove' a USB printer (via 'rmmod usblp') and then reboot, 
printconf-tui tries to create the directory /var/cache/foomatic. This fails 

type=AVC msg=audit( 1126301390.416:17): avc: denied { create } for pid=3106 
comm="printconf-tui" name="foomatic"

flags=10 inode=2142136 dev=fd:00 mode=040755 ouid=0 ogid=0 rdev=00:00

[This seems 'harmless', since printing appears to work, but ...]

Does this seem correct?
