All the exists(foo) checking is rather bad style, I'd like to keep that out of 
the port (the package will install all the bits into the right locations in 
my port, but not pull in any runtime dependencies - if the user needs a file 
conversion filter, he can just add the package).

I'll add the cups-filter bit, I assumed foomatic-filters would do that 
automatically but apparently it doesn't.

In what scenario is fdescfs needed to work properly? I've been using 
foomatic-rip / foomatic-gswrapper on my own systems for a while now without 
fdescfs and didn't have problems.
