Please have a look at the mailing list archive for previous
discussions on this topic. One of the reasons to compile all backends
is, that we don't want to generate lots of questions about "my scanner
is not detcted" because the wrong backend was compiled. E.g. you must
compile the plustek backend if you want support for the Epson
Perfection 1250.
