You have to recompile all the plug-ins that you want to use with the new 
version of gimp. You can't just copy them. I do not use Gutenprint, but 
usually I download the sources of the plug-ins and compile and install 
them with
gimptool --install <plug-in.c>
Note that this may overwrite files in your home gimp plug-ins or the 
system wide gimp plug-ins directory, so check this first.
Be sure to use the gimptool program that came with the version of GIMP 
that you want the plug-in to work with.
