The problems have been solved (as I posted yesterday). Initially, I did have
a wrong PPD. I had installed the correct one from xerox.com, but there was
at one point another PPD installed (maybe from printconf) that was wrong but
nonetheless had what looked like a correct name. linuxprinting.org doesn't
show a PPD for the 6280DN yet.
Even with the correct PPD, acroread made unprintable PostScript. (Apparently
openoffice does too, but I didn't test that.) Someone at cups.org worked out
a fix for that, and I posted the details in this thread yesterday.
