Nevermind.  Found what I needed.

So, this configuration worked:

1) Install hpijs
2) Install ghostscript-gnu
3) Install foomatic-db
4) Download foomatic-rip and install into /usr/local/bin
5) Install cups
6) Download DeskJet 6122 PPD from linuxprinting.org:
7) Install as deskjet3.ppd in /usr/local/share/cups/model
8) Use CUP's administration tool on localhost:631 to modify the printer,
   selecting the "HP DeskJet 6122, Foomatic + hpijs (recommended)"
9) Use CUP's administration tool on localhost:631 to configure the
   printer, turning on double-sided printing.

That's it.  It's possible that one or both of steps 3 and 4 aren't
