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.
