1. when you configure the new tarball, you should give it the params
required to put the files in the place of your existing OS install of
sane. i use something like:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-locking

unless i am on a 64 bit platform, then i sometimes have to add

configure --help is your friend.

otherwise, you end up with sane installed in /usr/local, where some
OS's ignore it :(

2. you should remove your existing sane package before you `make
install` the new one, otherwise sane wont overwrite the config files,
and you might be left with two copies of the libs installed.
