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:

(as root)
# cd /usr/ports/print/hplip
# make deinstall
# cd ..
# rm -rf hplip
# tar xvf <pathto>/hplip.tar
# cd hplip
# make install
