I took a stab at it, and was able to upgrade the hplip port to the
latest version. It may not be perfect, but it appears to work here
anyway. It'll be included in the final release, so hopefully your
printer will be working now :)
If you would like to test it out, I've attached the updated port, and
here's the install instructions:
# cd /usr/ports/print/hplip
# make deinstall
# cd ..
# rm -rf hplip
# tar xvf <pathto>/hplip.tar
# cd hplip
# make install
