I found that when I edit gimptool, that is not enough; I had to edit
the pc file as well to make it work. I didn't try with only the pc
file edited, and not gimptool.

It's running fine for me; Slackware 9.1, just installed the new gimp
and xsane from source, no problems at all (except the occasional
stubborness of my old skool parallel port Epson GT 6000, and that I
need saned to be run as root in debug mode; but that's not xsane's

Great work, thanks a bunch!
