I had the same problem when upgrading recently. Rebuilding the
cups-client port fixed it. If you have portmaster installed you can do:

portmaster -B -d cups-client

If not, go to /usr/ports/print/cups-client and run 'make deinstall' and
'make install clean' as root.

You need to set that in /etc/devfs.rules, and activate the ruleset in
/etc/rc.conf. The devfs.rules(5) manual pages explains it. Scanners are
even used as an example. :-) If you wish to give unrestricted access,
change the mode to 0666.
