I have a Brother MFC that I got running on NetBSD, but with a *lot* of
trouble.  There are many linux assumptions and dependencies, plus a
blob that has to execute in linux-only mode.  I got it working, but the
solution is sufficiently fragile that I've never tried copying to my
other machines, let alone putting it into pkgsrc.
