    Thanks for responding. Yes, you are right, I misread the
    INSTALL documentation. The /usr/local/lib entry is
    required. Unfortunately, adding this and running ldconfig
    did NOT solve the problem -- the same error occurs at the
    same place when running ./configure for sane-frontend-1.0.4:

    checking for SANE - version >= 1.0.0... no
    *** Could not run SANE test program, checking why...
    ERROR: SANE is needed for compiling sane-frontends
                - if you installed SANE as rpm make sure you
    also included sane-devel

    I even tried reinstalling the sane-backend after running
    ldconfig, and then rerunning ldconfig after this reinstall,
    which didn't seem likely to help, and it didn't.
