I have been trying to get sane to work with the epson perfection 660. I could
build sane with 1.0.11 but not with the snapscan addition. I could not build
1.0.12 at all. It would stop building at when trying to make scanimage but I
didn't see any error messages that made sense to me. I am running the latest os
x (10.2.6). Sadly I don't have a scanner available (other than the epson) to
test against. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
