The only difference is the device, using /dev/ulpt0 or /dev/unlpt0.  My 
"lpd Printing With FreeBSD" demonstrates:
http://www.wonkity.com/~wblock/docs/html/lpdprinting.html

But a foo2zjs printer may require a firmware download before it is even 
detected as a printer, and then foo2zjs probably requires CUPS.  There 
are some threads on forums.freebsd.org that may help.
