Then look the /usr/local/etc/sane.d You already have all files you need 
to have.

Debian is known for fine grinding of packages so I would not be 
surprised that they divided generic sane-backhand package in several part.
That is a very good practice but unfortunately FreeBSD does not have 
that man power and the user base to do the same.

Would you be so kind than to write how to for network scanning. It would 
be very good if you could append Handbook article about scanning. I have 
no clue whom you should contact with the offer to contribute the article 
for Handbook.
