    Run "make distclean" in sane-frontends to be sure that there are no
    cached results. After that run ./configure again. If this doesn't help:

    * Is there another version of SANE (e.g. from your distribution)
      installed somewhere? --> remove it.
    * Please send the output of configure (some more lines above the error
      message) and the config.log (beginning with "checking for sane-config")
    * Please send the output of sane-config --version and sane-config --cflags
    * Please do "ls -l /usr/local/lib/libsane*" and
      "ls -l /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-dll*"
    Maybe we can find out the source of the problem this way.
