Hi All,

I just got sane running on Solaris 2.5. I tested scanimage and
xscanimage (including gimp support) with an HP Scanjet II on
Solaris 2.5 for X86.
Since I modified sanei-scsi.c only, it should work with any other
SCSI-scanner supported by sane as well.
I used the scg driver SCHILYscg, which is free available up to
Solaris 2.5.1-X86 and Solaris 2.6-sparc.

Known bugs:
The SCSI-ID of the scanner has to be specified in config.h.
To determine the target automatically would require to include some
code from find-scanner in sanei_scsi_open(), which I have not done
up to now, because it is scanner dependent.

If anybody likes to test my patch with other scanners, please let me
