No color on CUPS

Hey everyone,

I hope this is FreeBSD-specific enough for this list...  Ever since 
moving to FreeBSD, I haven't been able to use color on my color 
laserjet.  I've tried selecting just about every color laserjet model 
from the web interface to CUPS that I can think of, and the only color 
models available are grayscale and inverted grayscale.  I was always 
able to get color no problem on my Linux box.  I know there's something 
stupid that I'm missing, but I'm not really knowledgeable about CUPS, 
much less CUPS on FreeBSD.

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it?  Thanks 
so much!
