CUPS printing error: ="/usr/local/libexec/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl failed

Hi, I recently installed Freenas (freeBSD) on an old computer and tried to install CUPS to setup the printer server, the printer is Samsung ML-2510, but it seems to have special "Samsung Printing Language". But I am facing this error:

I believe D [04/Aug/2012:08:54:26 +0800] [Job 39] printer-state-message="/usr/local/libexec/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl failed"
But the rastertosamsungspl was directly copied out from the CD, it is the 32bit one and 32 bit on my system too.
I am connecting by USB.
Thank you,
