Hi Simon,
I installed both packages. Used wheel instead of operators for devfs (I am member of wheel). running as root made it work great :)

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad z60m, upekts driver. The details :

FreeBSD ayiin.octantis.com.au 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #43: Mon Apr 14 11:50:52 EST 2008     root at ayiin.octantis.com.au:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/AYIIN  i386

$ sudo usbdevs  -v -d
Controller /dev/usb2:
addr 1: full speed, self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), Intel(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 addr 2: full speed, power 100 mA, config 1, Biometric Coprocessor(0x2016), STMicroelectronics(0x0483), rev 0.01

dmesg shows  :
