VueScan and FreeBSD's Linux (USB) emulation

I am trying to get the Linux version of VueScan (
to work under FreeBSD's Linux emulation.

With FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p9, linux_base-7.1_5, and RedHat's
gtk+-1.2.9-4.i386.rpm, it starts and operates ok, except for not finding
any USB devices. I have an Epson USB scanner that operates fine under
Sane, but find the available frontends lacking when wanting to scan

Is this supposed to work? I.e., should VueScan and other Linux programs be
able to access USB connected scanners and other devices?

There does not seem to be any major changes to the Linux code further down
the RELENG_4 branch...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could make this work?

Thank you in advance.
