You'll need the cups and cup-pdf ports/packages, then add

  cupsd_enable="YES"

to /etc/rc.conf and then

  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cupsd restart

and then point a browser at

  http://localhost:631

and go through the "add a printer" steps (when it asks device choose

I *think* that the username you give to the web interface whilst
adding the printer has to be in the 'wheel' group.
