    Hi. I downloaded all the latest SANE stuff today.

    - sane-1.0.3 compiled and installed fine, , but caused problems
      for sane-frontends-1.0.4 and xsane-0.68.

      On RedHat 7.0, the LIBS line in sane-config must contain -ldl or the
      sane-frontends-1.0.4 and xsane-0.68 installations fail.

            LIBS="-lnsl -lm -ljpeg -ldl"

      (Also, looking at it now, -lm should generally be the *last* library
      linked, as anything could end up using it. It didn't make a
      difference here, though.)

    - sane-backends-1.0.4 compiled and installed fine

    - sane-frontends-1.0.4 would not install. The first problem was the
      sane-config issue discussed above. Secondly, two makefiles needs to
      be modified (they appear to have some local munging that didn't get
      removed before the release).

      src/Makefile and doc/Makefile both require changing:

            INSTALL = ../'/usr/bin/install -c'


            INSTALL = /usr/bin/install -c

    - xsane-0.68 would not install prior to the sane-config fix.

    Thanks for all the work! I hope this helps you modify the configure
    script so others can install more easily.
