I currently run the previous version (3.9.6b), and htere the directory
/usr/local/share/ppd exists, and hplip installs files there:
root at kg-v2# portversion -v | grep hplip
hplip-3.9.6b                <  needs updating (port has 3.9.8)
root at kg-v2# ll /usr/local/share/ppd
total 40

drwxr-xr-x  182 root  wheel   4096 Sep 28 08:41 ../
drwxr-xr-x    2 root  wheel  34304 Aug 20 08:01 HP/

/usr/local/share/ppd/HP/hp-psc_950xi-hpijs.ppd.gz was installed by package
