cad/qcad only prints to PDF, no other options

I've never tried to print as I only have a printer.

(I always use export to PDF which works for me :)

as far as I can tell it uses the Qt framework though, and QtPrintsupport 
is part of x11/qt5-qtbase so should be included. However, it is normally 
distributed as a 'bundle' with everything copied in to private directories 
but I have broken that part up a bit and tried to make it use the 
installed versions in /usr/pkg/qt5/plugins. I could have broken it or 
never discovered it was missing. Do you have a 
printformats/ under there? (I don't have one)

I think you would have to specifically enable PKG_OPTIONS.qt5+=cups don't 
know if there is any other printing support available in Qt5
