Did anything more come out of this discussion?
I recently upgraded my main workstation to FreeBSD 8.0-stable:
tingo at kg-v2$ uname -a
FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #1: Wed Jan  6 21:21:40 CET 2010     root at  amd64

Attached to the machine is a Agfa SnapScan 1212U scanner:
root at kg-v2# usbconfig -u 2
ugen2.1: <OHCI root HUB nVidia> at usbus2, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON
ugen2.2: <Snapscan1212u_2 AGFA> at usbus2, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON

root at kg-v2# sane-find-scanner -q
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0xc202 [Photosmart 8200 series]) at libusb:/dev/usb:/dev/ugen1.2
found USB scanner (vendor=0x06bd [AGFA], product=0x2061 [ Snapscan1212u_2]) at libusb:/dev/usb:/dev/ugen2.2

(I don't know why sane-find-scanner thiunks that my HP printer have a scanner, but that doesn't matter)

root at kg-v2# SANE_DEBUG_SNAPSCAN=255 scanimage -v -v -L
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of snapscan to 255.

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
Calling sane_exit
[snapscan] sane_snapscan_exit
scanimage: finished

root at kg-v2# portversion -v | grep ^sane
sane-backends-1.0.20_4      =  up-to-date with port 
sane-frontends-1.0.14_5     =  up-to-date with port 

I did Google a bit, but that didn't turn up anything useful.
