cups gets pulled in by the redhat-lsb package which has /usr/bin/lpr as
a requirement.

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.
