[sane-devel] SANE installed from source doesn't work

I installed SANE from source and tried it and got the following:

[root@neofelis sane.d]# scanimage -d avision
scanimage: open of device avision failed: Invalid argument
[root@neofelis sane.d]# scanimage
scanimage: no SANE devices found

I get "Invalid argument" whether /usr/local/etc/sane.d/avision.conf contains
/dev/sga or 0x378. The scanner is a Memorex 6120P, which has an Avision chip
but uses the serial port. When I installed from RPM, attempting to scan hung
the program, which is what I expected. What am I missing?
