If I remember correct the problem is only visible when you compile a fron=
after the compilation of sane-0.5. Your recent sane-frontends load the sa=
library libsane.so.1 and this is found in /lib/sane as link to a library.
When you compile a frontend against sane-0.5 then the compiler
stores the soname of the libsane library in the frontend. This was
e.g. libsane-dll.so (not libsane.so). When you start such a frontend with=
/usr/lib/sane in /etc/ld.so.conf then the library is not found and the=20
frontend can not be started.
