It turned out to be a missing Perl script that foomatic-rip requires, 'Hash.pl'. This script is part of the Perl package, however Puppy uses a cutdown Perl, very cutdown. I modified the Perl template in Woof to include this script.
Then I discovered a problem in /usr/sbin/cups_shell. As I'm using SM2 I don't have MU's lovely PuppyBrowser and have to use SM as the internal help viewer, also for the CUPS web interface.
cups_shell starts SM with a help page, then tries to open the CUPS web interface. The latter fails as SM needs a couple of seconds to start the help page, more time on older PCs. I fixed this.
Hey, my latest Tpup is just 90MB!
