Well, sorry I haven't researched it to know how widely available it is
before giving you false hope :-( One factor that maybe a major
difference from your setup is that I use the HP drivers for my laserjet
under cups. If not that, then maybe it's the fact that I use cups from
the opensuse repos? 

Since it's pdf and you maybe able to use cups, does printing from
ghostscript offer any option? Don't know - just fishing for options ;-)
