Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000, pwc driver, & webcam software...

I am running FreeBSD 6.1, and am attempting to get a webcam up and
I installed the pwcbsd driver and placed pwc_load="YES" in loader.conf.
Upon boot, the camera is recognized and dmesg tells me
pwc0: Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 USB webcam
pwc0: This camera is equipped with a Sony CCD sensor + TDA8787 (32)
So far so good.
Now I am at a loss, and am looking for advice.
I can't seem to find any software that captures images that works. I
have looked at camserv, motion, spcaview, cqcam, phpsview, but none of
them seem to want to cooperate (note - these use the ugen device and I
tried them w/o the pwc driver).
So, is anyone aware of software for still & motion image capture that
indeed works with the bwc driver?
Many thanks for any/all suggestions.
