sane-desc now has support for printing USB vendor/product ids in
hotplug (libsane.usermap), hotplug-ng (libsane.db) and udev
(libsane.rules) format. Please test! Especially the udev format is
completely untested.

Try something like
cd tools
./sane-desc --help
./sane-desc -m usermap -s ../doc/descriptions
