I'm not sure I know what you mean by "points to".

[root at enigma z53]# man printcap
No manual entry for printcap
[root at enigma z53]# man -k printcap
printcap: nothing appropriate

/etc/printcap says:
# This file was automatically generated by cupsd(8) from the
# /etc/cups/printers.conf file.  All changes to this file
# will be lost.

[root at enigma z53]# locate LexmarkZ53
