Does sane-backends 1.0.12 work?

Try "./configure --disable-warnings" to avoid some of the warnings.

I think that's a real bug, the line marked "->" is 4444:

    if (ioReturnValue != kIOReturnSuccess || masterPort == NULL)
      return SANE_STATUS_IO_ERROR;

->  io_object_t scsiDevice = NULL;

    int i;  

There are variable definitions after the code. I don't know if C99
allows this, but older C doesn't. That's C++.

The core foundation warnings may be because of the enabled warning
option in configure.

The MacOS X support for sanei_scsi is from Mattias Ellert
<mattias.ellert@tsl.uu.se>. I'm cc'ing him in case he doesn't read
