OK, why not compile on another computer, and just copy the binary(s)
to the print server?
This is what I do on a couple of P-90's I have (running Slack).
Seems to work well for me.

270 MB? Depends on how much you have left over. I haven't ever
a print job that was more than a couple of MB (OK, except for some
large color postscripts, but that isn't a concern here).
As to the merits of CUPS vs. LPRng, I have to plead ignorance. :-)
