It should need one more parent directory to point to /usr/local/bin/foomatic-rip.
If you're using CUPS it's probably better to use cups-filters instead of foomatic-filters. Foomatic-filters is no longer developed and cups-filters contains a more recent version of foomatic-rip.

svn diff to fix reported problem and bump PORTREVISION
Thanks. I've also bumped PORTREVISON and tested with poudriere .
Tijl, what do you think about removing the port? I can post to ports@ to gauge if anyone has reasons to prefer print/foomatic-filters over print/cups-filters.

I would keep it for now. It can be used without CUPS, it's low maintenance and others are still shipping it too.
