Printing with hpijs + magicfilter

Is anyone successfully using print/magicfilter to invoke ghostscript with -sDEVICE=ijs ?

I've created my DeskJet_6940 filter with the following line (manually wrapped for E-mail)

        0 %! filter /usr/bin/env TEMP=${TMPDIR:-/tmp} /usr/pkg/bin/gs \
        -sIjsServer=hpijs -sDeviceManufacturer="HP" \
        -sDeviceModel="DeskJet_6940" -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS=612 \
        -dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS=792 -dDuplex=false -r300 \
        MediaType=0,Quality:PenSet=2,PS:MediaPosition=7 \
        -dIjsUseOutputFD -sOutputFile=- -sPAPERSIZE=letter -

And I've placed the ppd file in


But whenever I try to print a postscript file, I get one line of text instead of the desired document:

        **** Unable to open the initial device, quitting.

(I'm 99% certain that this message comes from hpijs, and not from gs, since the word "initial" appears nowhere in the gs executable!)

Any hints?

BTW, suggestions to replace print/magicfilter with print/cups won't work. It seems that cups requires the print/poppler-utils package, which has an install conflict with xpdf...
