I think Mike made a typo when he wrote "magicfilter should install
/usr/bin/magicfilter".  Magicfilter should/would have been put in
/usr/local/bin (not in /usr/bin) either as a binary or a symlink to
something in /usr/local/libexec/magicfilter.  I haven't used it in
a long time, so i do not know what kind of file it will be in

(I have a PS printer; enscript (from ports) works wonderfully.  If
i were to have a non-PS printer, i would definitely been using
magicfilter in place of disgustingly overweight apsfilter,
