Hi everyone,

I've changed the test for the v4l header file (linux/videodev.h) in
the current CVS of sane-backends. The v4l backend is now only built if
that header is not only found but also compilable. That should
workaround a compilation error when the kernel header of Linux 2.6 is
used directly. The real fix is to add our own header to sane-backends
and not depend on that kernel header but that must wait after the

Please test if that change breaks anything.
