    What you say ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc

    Well, with the line export SANE_CONFIG_DIR=/etc/sane.d, seen in man
    sane-mustek, it works well :
    [leloar@alibaba ~]$ scanimage -L
    device `pnm:0' is a Noname PNM file reader virtual device
    device `pnm:1' is a Noname PNM file reader virtual device
    device `mustek:/dev/scanner' is a Mustek ScanExpress 12000SP flatbed scanner

    I don't know why he doesn't find the config dir alone but as it is ok why this
    litle help, I'll do why it.

    Thank you for the help
