      Thanks for the suggestion:-) I got it running after Henning's guidance on Dec 23. It was the line "/usr/local/lib in /etc/" that was my problem.

    I had the same problem and this is how I got it to work for mw.

    I removed the sane-frontends-1.0.4 and sane-backends-1.0.4 using rm -rf
    I then unntarred the backend file changed directory to
    I did ./configure.
    Then make clean ( I can't get distclean to work I always get command not
    found when I try it.)
    then make, then make install

    I then untarred sane-frontends-1.0.4
     changed directory to /sane-frontends-1.0.4
    make clean
    make install

    It worked!
    I am using Red Hat 6.2 on an P III system. I don't know if this will
    work on another Distribution or not. I did have to remove the sane-
    files before I reinstalled them It didn't work until I did.

    Hope it helps you.
