scanimage probably can't find the config files that's all. Put a copy of
dll.conf and your microtek[2].conf file in the current working directory for
now, to test it.

A couple of notes, the arguments to configure should be --prefix=/sw

The other thing is, it looks like you're building and running sane as root.
One really ought to avoid using root for anything other than for the real
essential activities. One slip of the keyboard and you could do nasty things
to your machine... 

I'll let you know once I've been able to sort out the issue that abel has
mentioned - it could be the cause of the problems you've seen...

Cheers,
Guy
