cups gets pulled in by the redhat-lsb package which has /usr/bin/lpr as
sendmail is in the core group. If you kickstart, you can say
in your package section to exclude sendmail from getting installed. You
don't want to exclude the redhat-lsb package, as that pulls in loads of
needed software during the installation.
