hplip error: No module named sip

I have been using hplip with great comfort for over a year. But when I 
tried to install my HP 1110 printer on my tertiary box with FreeBSD 
Current (12, r316508), I get a strange error upon trying to run hp-setup 
: "error: No module named sip".

To the best of my knowledge, the printer does not show up in the output 
of usbconfig. If I remember correctly, this printer always shows up in 
FreeBSD named as a device of either HP or Hewlett Packard. Which is even 
more strange considering that, even on this box, CUPS recognizes the 
printer and I managed to add a queue for it in the CUPS web interface.

What might be wrong ? Thanks for any help.
