Thanks for answering.
Gutenprint is a case apart.It's not like the regular python plugins.
In Gentoo you can indicate to the package managing system that you want it also 
as a plugin for Gimp.
All packages in Gentoo are compiled on your box.
I have in the past done this with 2.6 several times worked ok.
