Some corrections/clarifications:

The file name of the configuration file for the dll backend is
"dll.conf" not "ldd.conf". If the mustek_pp backend is commented out
here (and it always is) it won't be loaded at runtime. But it is
compiled nevertheless. That means, you can also edit
/usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf after compiling/installing SANE.

During installation, the existing .conf files are NOT overwritten. To
avoid keeping old files, do "make uninstall" before "make install".
Then edit the files in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/ . This makes your
procedure easier.

5  Configuring saned

... Saned is a server ... (not SANE).

Concerning your security concerns: ususally saned shouldn't be started
as root but in your case you have no choice. So it's ok provided you
deny access from outside and trust your local users.

You don't need to add localhost to saned.conf because local users are
allowed by default.

Just nitpicking: with /etc/init.d/inetd restart only inetd is rstarted
(something like "killall -HUP inetd), saned is only started when a
request to port 6566 is received.

Do you know why you need to set the debug level? Is this also needed
if you scann (as root) directly with scanimage not using saned?
