Humm, something must have changed in the way of dependencies here. it 
built without incident, and installed, but in August, the last time I 
tried to do 1.5.2 from tarball, right after it was released, the 
compiler spit it out.  This time it completed.

However that means I should have a GT-6800 backend, but if I uncomment 
epkowa in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/sane.dll, it isn't showing up in the 
xsane choice window yet, all I'm seeing is the plustek backend (its 
an epson 1250u).  Is there something else I need to do?  Running 
iscan from the cli gets me a "failed to send message to scanner" 
advisory window, but no more.

Thanks for any other suggestions you can make Terry.

Cheers, Gene
