Thanks Brad,

On my Gentoo box I haven't got avahi installed. I do however have mDNSResponder running. Yet it doesn't look like this support the record subtype (_universal._sub._ipp._tcp) which is required for Airprint.  

A little digging in the code : 

status = mDNS_RegisterService(&mDNSStorage, &thisServ->coreServ,
                &name, &type, &domain,				// Name, type, domain
                NULL, mDNSOpaque16fromIntVal(portNumber),
                text, textLen,						// TXT data, length
                NULL, 0,							// Subtypes
                mDNSInterface_Any,					// Interface ID
                RegistrationCallback, thisServ);	// Callback and context

seems to confirm this, as the subtype is always set to Null (if I am reading it correctly)

I guess I could switch to avahi and follow the instructions :
