You could check the source file sanei_scsi.c and see if it contains the
function ExecuteCommandUsingSTUC


% grep ExecuteCommandUsingSTUC  sanei_scsi.c

It's probably worked, but to be sure, you don't really need fink to build
it. You can download the source distribution for 10.0.12, apply the patch,

% configure --prefix /sw
% make
% sudo make install

Best remove the fink version before doing so.

What do you get when you try :

% sh
% SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_SCSI=6 scanimage -L
% SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_SCSI=6 scanimage -x 25.6 -y 25.6 >img.pnm
