I've added the script to the tools directory. If you want to call it
automatically from backend/Makefile please send a patch for the
install traget that only executes when os2 is used.

Better add a license to everything to avoid discussions. I've used GPL
in this case.

Please check if the script still works.

By the way, your website says:
"Optionally you can remove support for scanners you don't need to make
compiling faster and libsane.dll smaller.
For this purpose you have to modify
sane-backends-1.0.14/backend/Makefile.in and remove the scanners you
don't need from the list which starts with:

That doesn't work anymore. Just run configure like this:
BACKENDS="net mustek whatever" ./configure

Or modify backend/Makefile after it was generated by configure.

Also "--enable-translations" has been the default setting for some
