    Yes, I am the invisible man behind you :-)

    Especially the Alphastation and Digital Unix server seem to be important.
    If you have enough time you can do the tests on Solaris, too.

    What I test is: does shared and static compile work? Does installation work?
      --> ./configure ; make ; make install
      --> ./configure --disable-shared ; make ; make install
    Enable the pnm backend in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf. Try "scanimage -L".
    You should see the two pnm entries. Put an .pnm testfile (e.g. generated
    with Gimp) somewhere. Try "scanimage -d pnm:0 --filename somefile.pnm -T".
    If you have more time (and root acccess to the computer) you can try network
    scanning, too. --> "scanimage -d net:localhost:pnm:0 --filename somefile.pnm -T"

    But this is quite some work ...

    Please wait until I have added the necessarry fixes to the CVS, this may
    take until tomorrow evening.
