	I'm no expert on this and since I use fink to install this was a  
little tricky.

	Here's what I did. I edited the fink info file for sane-backends to  
uncomment the patch command, and placed the patch file in the same  
directory as the fink info file. The I ran a fink rebuild command. As  
the build was in progress I was able to see the patch executing, so I'm  
pretty sure it worked ok.  Is there any way to double check ?

	Anyway the good or the bad news depending on how you look at it, is  
that I get the same issue

	Thanks for the attention.
