Everything is working just fine now. As I've mentioned before, the
mustek-driver complained about INQUIRY being not supported. After fiddling
around with the scsi-adapters, kernel modules and all that stuff without
significant successes, I've took a look at the sane sources. From there
I've figured out that SANE_STATUS_UNSUPPORTED is returned by
sanei_scsi_cmd() if - and only if - neither of the scsi-include-files
(scsi.h scsi/sg.h sys/scsi.h sys/scsiio.h) were found. adding the
appropriate links in /usr/include fixed the problem. I've already
scanned some images and I'm really fascinated :-)

I'd suggest to make configure print out a really _huge_ warning in case it
can't find any of the scsi-include-files or at least visibly disable
mustek (and any other scsi-devices) support. It was quite a pain till I've
realized the problem's nature.. ;-)

Thanks for listening to me anyway,
