Installing cups-1.4.2_1 port reports port MISSING

I recently installed FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE on amd64 architecture.

I am trying to use portmanager to install print/cups. Many ports have
installed just fine, but this one is failing, and my expertise is not
yet sufficient to know where to look for the solution. Here is what I
am trying:

# portmanager print/cups

portmanager 0.4.1_9 INFO: finished with some ports not updated  if --
log was used see /var/log/portmanager.log

Seems hard to believe that such an important function, "cups", is just
missing from the ports tree. I have updated the ports on my system

# csup -g -L 2 /root/ports-supfile
# cd /usr/ports
# make readmes && make index

So if I'm just doing something wrong due to ignorance, please point me
in the right direction so that I can solve my problem... Thank you!
