pdftoraster is used only when using the cups raster API. This only effects printers that don't understand postscript. Not all printers use this. Cups uses poppler to convert from pdf to ps. The problem is pdftoraster uses ghostscript. Ghostscript has problems with TONS of pdf files. That is why cups switched and is now using poppler. The pdftoraster is part of ghostscript.

The solution is simple. Convert from pdf to ps with poppler and then convert from ps to raster with ghostscript.
