I tried this and found out that xscanimage (along with the jpeg plug-in)
were linking to X11 libraries that were in turn linked to libc5 (RedHat
5.0 uses libc6). Actually the executables ended up being linked to libc5
*and* libc6, which seems to be the root of a number of problems I've
been having. At this point, putting /usr/X11R6/lib in the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before the directory containing the libc5-related
libraries did the trick.
Thanks for the assistance! I hope this helps someone else as well.
