That printers.conf file plus the contents of the /etc/cups/ppd directory
may be all you need to copy, but that assumes the old ppd files
and wot-not are compatible, your mileage may vary with that :-).
(Tim Waugh would know more than me if this is all you need, but
certainly when I define a new printer, the only things I've noticed
changing are the addition of a ppd file and another printer
added to printers.conf).
