Yes, lots of people do it every day. It compiles fine on my Debian 2.2
and my SuSE 6.something (with lots of local changes), FreeBSD 4.1, AIX
4, Solaris and Irix (at least).

Im not an expert in these things so I'm just guessing:
sanei_scsi.c includes <scsi/sg.h> (if available) and "linux_sg3_err.h" which

If they were the same file there wouldn't be a redefinition because of
#define _SCSI_SG_H 1
in the header. I guess that you have a link from /usr/include/linux to
/usr/src/linux/include so <scsi/sg.h> is included from
/usr/include/scsi and <linux/../scsi/sg.h> is included from
/usr/src/linux/include/scsi. As the latter file has the following macro:
both will be included. I don't have this link so the problem hasn't ocurred for
me. Maybe someone else can point to a solution (if I'm right)?

Did you install it in the default location (/usr/local/)?

That's a bug but it's not the source of your problem. The test for
sane_major_version is done to check why the test program couldn't be
linked to sane. So there is probably a program with linking to the
SANE libs in your case.
sane-config is found but the test for SANE >= 1.0.0 fails?
Could you please send the output of "sane-config --version" and
"sane-config --cflags"? Also look for "sane-config" in config.log and
send all lines up to the end including this line. Did you look at
INSTALL (concerning libs in /usr/local/lib)?

At least the last bug is fixed in CVS but as I said it's not the
