I'm not sure what PPD I'd use.  With the XP virtual machine, I fixed a
similar problem by switching (at your suggestion) to the PCL description.
However, Xerox doesn't offer a Linux PCL file for this Phaser.

What's more baffling to me is why printing from acroread just stopped
working.  Neither the PPD nor any of the acroread packages have changed since
I built Wheezy five months ago.  I noted on June 24th that printing from
acroread worked, and I think it only stopped working a week or two ago.
