Oh, yes, sorry. My bad.

Well, has Henning said, this is a bug in certain versions of the libc,
as the relevant RFCs document a ss_family member in struct sockaddr

Comment the definition of SANE_USES_AF_INDEP in saned.c, and it'll
fall back to the IPv4-only code, which do not use this particular
structure. You may need to do the same in backend/net.c.

I'll look into adding a check to configure.
