I assume that you installed cups and hplip with pkgin. This tool fetches binary packages which have been compiled from the pkgsrc framework (see http://pkgsrc.org/). By looking at the pkgsrc package tree, I see that ippfind is a binary of the print/cups-base package for which the installation seems to be conditioned by the activation of a non-default option (avahi). Therefore, the set of binary packages provided by pkgin should contain a cups without ippfind.
I suggest you to update your cups to a "custom" version for which you enable the avahi option. You have to fetch a pkgsrc source tree, enable the option by adding PKG_OPTIONS.cups-base= avahi in /etc/mk.conf and install the package with a command as cd /usr/pkgsrc/print/cups-base && make update package.
For more information, please read the pkgsrc guide: http://www.netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/
