I am edgy because I have a coupon to print and a printer (HP LaserJet M1212nf 
MFP) that refuses to set up.

Needed port/package is print/hplip, where cups is a dependency.  FreeBSD got 
stuck because the broken cups-base 1.7.2 wouldn't build.

I could try to build emulators/wine-devel on FreeBSD i386 and then see if the 
printer will set up with Windows software in wine.  I could try that on 
NetBSD-current as well, and Linux subsequently.
