Are you talking about the scanimage target? As far as I can see,
scanimage.c doesn't need anything from sanei. About which symbol is
the linker complaining? Are you compiling a static frontend?

You mean ltmain.sh and/or acinclude.m4? It's probably better to ask
the libtool maintainers so we don't have to do the work with every
libtool upgrade. But if the patch is simple, we can do it also in SANE.

A unified diff for the above mentioned files would be much more
usefull :-) I tried to apply your patch but most hunks fail.

Which backend?
