Fixed in SVN, just had to update our default cups config, you should be able to add / remove and
set options now via the tool.

If you want to try it out for screenshots now, go ahead and do so:

http://trac.pcbsd.org/browser/pcbsd/trunk/system-overlay/usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf, and
replace /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf with it. Then restart cups, and it should just work. :)
