including complete log file, but the short version is that this is happening (under a fresh
FreeBSD 6.0 install): 

D [12/Feb/2006:12:36:44 -0800] [Job 20] foomatic-gswrapper: gs
'-sIjsServer=hpijs' '-sDeviceManufacturer=HEWLETT-PACKARD'
'-sDeviceModel=deskjet 5550' '-dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS=612'
'-dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS=792' '-dDuplex=false' '-r300'
'-dIjsUseOutputFD' '-sOutputFile=/dev/fd/3' '/dev/fd/0' 3>&1 1>&2 D

[12/Feb/2006:12:36:44 -0800] [Job 20] **** Unable to open the initial
device, quitting.

says that either the output file or the temp directory is invalid.
As far as I can tell the temporary directory is fine, though I could be
wrong about that too. 

I've had this printer working under CUPS before, and I can print to it
with a different driver from the same system (one that doesn't use
foomatic) and the SuSE setup to use this printer is dead simple.

Any idea what I screwed up?
