Printers with sole-source drivers like that make me nervous.  If the 
driver or certain features doen't work on your system, it doesn't leave 
a lot of options.

foo2qpdl doesn't appear to be in ports, but probably it'll build okay 
anyway.  If it were me, I'd make sure that builds and runs first, making 
a port of it.  Then test the output on a sample printer before buying.
