I'm using CUPS which seems to support the Phaser 6110 via the SpliX port
so I assume I wouldn't need foo2qpdl. But rather worryingly pkg-descr
lists the 6110 as "Untested".
I don't have the necessary skills to hack the driver if things don't
work so it looks like I'll probably have to eliminate this model from
my list unless I can get any feedback from anybody who is successfully
using one with FreeBSD.
