As you can easily see the firmware file entry still has a "file:" 
prefix which mustn't be there:

> [snapscan] Cannot open firmware file
>  file:/usr/local/etc/sane.d/Esfw41.bin. [snapscan] Edit the
> firmware file entry in snapscan.conf.

Make sure you're editing the correct snapscan.conf. If you ran 
"configure" without any arguments, it is found 
in /usr/local/etc/sane.d. If you specify --prefix the location will 

Also make sure that you don't end up with multiple installations of 
SANE in different places.

If you get this error:

[snapscan] Downloading /path/to/your/firmware/file.bin
[snapscan] Cannot open firmware file /path/to/your/firmware/file.bin.

you didn't edit snapscan.conf at all (or the wrong snapscan.conf) 
since "/path/to/your/firmware/file.bin" is the default entry.
