This is because the RPM system checks dependencies between installed
components. Because you installed sane-backends and sane-backends from
sources instead of from RPM, the sane packages are not in the RPM
database and RPM misses a dependency.

You may be able to resolve this by running rpm from the shell
and add either the '--force' or '--nodeps' options, something like
rpm -ivh xsane-0.82-3.1.i386.rpm --force
(or rpm -ivh xsane-0.82-3.1.i386.rpm --nodeps, not quite sure)

BTW, the latest version of xsane is 0.86
