On gentoo this mean that you need set use="-print" for when you emerge gimp 
(IE. set this in /etc/portage/package.use) and then emerge gimp-print with 
the correct keywords set to get gutenprint 5.0 which is currently marked ~ 
for all architectures.  I have been doing this for sometime now without any 
problems and if I remember correctly this is what the Gentoo devs recommended 
in a bug report about this.  Setting use="-print" is no longer needed for 
versions of gimp >=2.3.x but you do have to emerge gimp and gimp-print in the 
correct order to end up with the gutenprint 5 plugin in gimp.
