    This is how Red Hat did it for 1.0.3. I had a lot of other thing to worry
    about first. Please do as you think is better. I still wonder why -O2 did
    not suit Red Hat team. Does compiler produce bad code with -O2?

    Since I am not an active sane users I did not go into details. There could
    be that I left someting out when I was doing a split into backends and
    frontends package. Please feel free to correct.

    Excellent! I'll wait for your test results. If you have time please look
    at xsane RPM in the same place. Apparently latest version does not need
    any patches in order to compile properly on RH 7.0
