Libgnomesu was imported into the repositories for gnome-cups-manager. I was
against adding it, though I had no option: replacing the su helper to gksu
didn't work those days.

Gnome-cups-manager seems to depend on a "gnomesu" package now, which also
provides this binary. I think we can remove libgnomesu.
