on a fresh arch install i created symlinks as suggested by pavbarnov and lsandig.
and just to be on the safe side i created this one:
ln -s /usr/share/brother/sane/ /usr/local/brother/sane
(note the lowercase b in "brother") and it works great with no leftover files from previous install

The latest package does not install anything in /usr/local.
So if your solution works then there are still files from a previous install left on your system.

Still had the same error as pavbarnov:

Aborted (core dumped)

Adding the link
$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/brother/sane/ /usr/local/Brother/sane
to match the folder layout from brother's rpm fixed it for me.

Now installs in /usr/share/brother instead of /usr/local/Brother.
@pavbaranov: if your scanner is not working check that /usr/lib64 is a link to /usr/lib!!

After some changes in Arch it's very probably, that your brscan2 scanner will not work anymore. The solution is very simple. You should do this:
# ln -s /usr/lib/sane/ /usr/local/lib/sane/
# ln -s /usr/lib/sane/ /usr/local/lib/sane/
# ln -s /usr/lib/sane/ /usr/local/lib/sane/

Reverted back to old install location to fix scanner-problem.
Thanks pavbaranov for pointing this out to me!

So there is no need to follow pavbaranov's previous post.

If somebody has this same problem with brscan2 as I (64bit system!), then:
1. Remove brscan2
2. Install driver according to this:
It works.

Scanner works fine. The problem is, that location of /usr/share/brother/sane/ is wrong. DCP-115C works perfectly with original location in /usr/local/Brother/sane

That looks okay to me.
For me the package works for a brother MFC210-scanner on arch32.
I'm not in any printer- or scanner-group.
The only group i'm in is the wheel-group (for sudo access).
I'm out of ideas at this moment
