You're welcome.

Yep, the scanner was an HP5470c USB.

You can fetch the source package I use to build libsane-extras on

Basically, you need to add hp5400 to the list of backends in
backend/Makefile.in, and add a dependency for libsane-hp5400.la on

With that done, the file backend/hp5400.c will be picked up and built
(that's why I had to rename hp5400-sane.c).
