Recompiled everything and made sure that directories were what I wanted.

I checked out the cvs version of sane. The scanner now scans, but for a
preview scan I get vertical colored lines in a black and white document
When I scan, the image is rotated 45 degrees clockwise and the colored
lines are still there--also rotated. I can try to "hack" on the
avision.c file--I'm not really very good at this--to see if I can find
the differences between the cvs and the latest build. Pointers?

I think I forgot to run "ldconfig" when I copied libusbscanner. No
permissions problem anymore. OOOOPS. Sorry.
