I think you should have to install cups-pdf, and only that. I agree
that -- functionally speaking -- the option to print to a PDF shouldn't
be displayed if the necessary bits are not installed.
However, I think there are specific printing related bugs in epiphany
which are not present in other GNOME apps; it might make sense to look
at other apps than epi to do your tests (e.g. gedit), and then revisit
epiphany with the results of your tests.
