Well, the debug out you sent indicates that the version of sg.h used for
compiling the Sane package does not define the macro SG_IO and that
config.h does not define the macro HAVE_SG_TARGET_STATUS. Both are
indications that an old version of sg.h is used.

Do you get more debug output for SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_SCSI=255 ? I am mainly
interested in lines containing "target status: XX host status: XX 
driver status: XX". This debug output is only produced, if the complier
uses a not too old version of sg.h .
