As far as I've been told, no. Just the libsane and libsane-devel. The reason is that you keep using the same libs while upgrading the back/frontends.
Now the funny part is that I have libs 1.0.5 and BOTH backends 1.0.5 (from default MDK RPM installation) and 1.0.8 (from a tarball that I have compiled and installed: they are located in different places:

[root@Trent usr]# /usr/bin/sane-config --version
[root@Trent usr]# /usr/local/bin/sane-config --version

sane-find-scanner and scanimage work if launched from /usr/local/bin (of course, only 1.0.8 supports my scanner). And now the question: how can I tell xsane to search for sane files in the 1.0.8 directory?!

Thank you for your help!
