    Maybe a problem with the shared libraries. It looks like
    points to (or is) Can you check this? Maybe you have
    /usr/lib/sane in your (don't do this for newer SANE
    versions). Did you install sane in prefix /usr (instead of /usr/local)?
    Then this /usr/lib/sane/ is probably an old version.
    Remove the old SANE files before installing the new libraries.
