ghostscript hl1250 support?

I recently bought a Brother HL-1850 laser printer for use with my FreeBSD 5.1 
machine, and it works fine with the ljet4 ghostscript driver.  However, I'd 
like to be able to use the higher resolution settings that are available 
through the hl1250 driver, and that driver doesn't seem to be supported in the 
FreeBSD ghostscript-gnu or ghostscript-afpl port.  Is there any way to add 
this support to ghostscript-gnu, or is there a FreeBSD port of ESP ghostscript 
in the works? 
I've never written a FreeBSD port, but I'm an experienced C programmer and 
would be more than willing help with an espgs/hl1250 port/update if someone 
would point me in the right direction. 
Also, please let me know if there's some ghostscript-specific e-mail address 
or mailing list I should send this to.
