The soname of all sane libraries have to be "libsane.so.1"
or you will not be able to make a frontend to load
any backend.

The important thing is that the sane-libraries are not in a standard
library path of the system.

Normally all libraries are in
and this path is not searched by ldconfig.
It is not allowed to put /usr/local/lib/sane to /etc/ld.so.conf

in /usr/local/lib
there is normally a copy of libsane-dll.so.* or a link to=20
