Setting up CUPS on FreeBSD-arm using Raspberry Pi 2

In trying to set up CUPS on a Raspberry Pi running -current there seems
to be a catch-22: CUPS compiles, installs and answers a browser pointed
at localhost:631 but attemps to print a test page report

no such file or directory

which it is suggested (by a web search) can be fixed by installing

An attempt to make cups-filters appears to stop in something called
icc, apparently /usr/ports/lang/icc, which is of inconsistent with
an ARM host.

Am I correct in thinking that cups-filters is necessary to getting
CUPS running on a Raspberry Pi? It's a model 2 if that matters, uname

FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT (RPI2) #0 r309382: Fri Dec  2 23:22:02 PST 2016
