I got it fixed, I ran "make rmconfig-recursive" on gutenprint and CUPS and 
rebuilt them making sure gutenprint was set to use CUPS. this forced some 
other stuff to work and now it actually has the postscript driver listed for 
my printer and it fully works in gnome now. never had to touch 

I find it kind of self defeating for the ports if you HAVE to add stuff to 
the /etc/make.conf file for it to work without any documentation telling you 
to do so or not doing it automatically (Like PERL did)
