According to
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/us/us/en/monolasermfc/m
fc8680dn_us/spec/index.html, this device does have PC FAX capabilities on
Windows/Mac/Linux.

Here is the download site for Linux drivers:

With some Linux emulator and CUPS tweaking, you should be able to get the
Linux PC FAX capability working on FreeBSD.

YMMV, HTH.
