That's one problem I never had. Make sure cups 1.1 is completely 
uninstalled. Stop cupsd daemon. Remove anything left over 
in /usr/local/etc/cups. Make sure there is 
no /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ script. Install cups 1.2. Then make sure 
the cupsd daemon is started again (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/cupd start).
