Where did you get this from? This RPM is extremely old. Try a current
one (1.0.5), or, if you can't find one, try the source code.

Probably you are using an old SANE RPM with a newer system.

If you can't get a newer version of SANE from your distributor, you
can try to make RPMs from the latest source code of SANE and the
latest source RPMs from your distribution.
