The gtk-only build will just have the old style printer dialog.
The gnome-build has a very fancy printer dialog. Thanks to the tip we just
got from John Mellor it looks like we go even better for the GNOME FE and
use gtklp. So for gnome you can do: print, print preview (which is REALLY
cool), PDF output and print to FAX.
The GTK-only types don't seem to want all the extra goodness you get from
the Gnome platfrom.
