    Some things could be improved.

     1. There is no need to change -O2 to -O with a perl script.
    This could have been done with a shell script. But it's even better to set
    the build parameters by setting $RPM_OPT_FLAGS properly.

     2. the backend sets something for xscanimage in %install.
    Why does the backend bother with setting files for the frontend?

     3. I found the find-scanner and xerox tools usefull in the past.

    I'll do some testing and send you a diff for the SPEC file.
