You know, while there are printing utils that actually work on FreeBSD, I
can't personally recommend CUPS.  I keep on trying to get it to work on
FreeBSD efvery year or so, then I need to go over to one of my other
systems.  Last one I tried was an Epson Stylus C84, but I've also tried HP
officejets, and I just can't get locally attached printers to work with
cups.  I can get them to work with things like apsfilter very well, but
either someone is going to have to fix the Cups port (it builds, but
nothing locally runs) or stop recommending it.

Or, does anyone else have it working on FreeBSD?  Sure would like to hear
about it, but I've been trying for a long time now, with no success.
