There are still some weeks left for improvement :-)

I had a quick look at the package. It compiles fine for me and I
couldn't find any fundamental problem when looking at the code.
The only thing is:

make libcheck says:
Libraries exporting 'illegal' symbols:
*** backend/.libs/libsane-hp3900.a:
00000000 D use_gamma_tables
Libraries exporting 'non-standard sane_*' symbols:
*** backend/.libs/libsane-epson.a:
000052d0 T sane_auto_eject
