John,
Create you own menuScan.dbd in your ${MY_DIRECTORY}/dbd directory.
Then edit the makefile in your driver source and add a new USR_DBDFLAGS
directive.

# Used by dbExpand to look for dbd files
USR_DBDFLAGS += -I ${MY_DIRECTORY}/dbd
USR_DBDFLAGS += -I ${EPICS_BASE}/dbd

Note that the order of the directories is important.
