Hello Laszlo,

You might want to add the following lines to /etc/make.conf


And rebuild the application you want to print from.

(The above was found on the excellent guide at http://www.math.colostate.edu/~reinholz/freebsd/)
Thank you! I already have a running system, so I had to

setenv WITH_CUPS
cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20
make deinstall
make install clean

I do not fully understand why it is done this way. Most users - including me - are going to install gnome2 first, and most likely CUPS is not installed by that time. It is also true that many users who install gnome2 will have a printer and want to use it. So I would recommend to create a make option "[X] CUPS support" for gtk20, or at least for gnome2. It was quite hard to find information about this issue on the internet! Should I post a PR for this? (It is not a real bug but I think it causes problems for many users.)
