True. Most man pages contain something like this:
This environment variable specifies the list of
directories that may contain the configuration file.
Under UNIX, the directories are separated by a colon
(:'), under OS/2, they are separated by a semi-colon
(;'). If this variable is not set, the configuration
file is searched in two default directories: first, the
current working directory (".") and then in
/usr/local/etc/sane.d. If the value of the environment
variable ends with the directory separator character,
then the default directories are searched after the
explicitly specified directories. For example, setting
SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would result in
directories "tmp/config", ".", and
"/usr/local/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order).
I guess that should be added to sane-plustek.man. Also there is no
mention of "SANE_DEBUG_PLUSTEK".
