[sane-devel] Mac OS X: make errors

Firstly Mattias, I want to thank you for all the effort you have put  
into creating the packages for TWAIN SANE Interface for Mac OS X. I  
hadn’t realized just how much effort you had put into these packages  
until I looked at your development directories.

I did try TWAIN SANE first, before embarking on this journey into  
compiling sources for myself. It did not work with my newly acquired  
Canon PIXMA MX850. At that time, I had convinced myself that the  
problem seemed to be with the pixma backend rather than any of your  
work. Hence I thought  to grab the latest pixma backend and compile it  

Now, I am not sure where the problem lies. Being a noob, I have  
managed to confuse myself. Following on what Chris Bagwell has  
suggested, I suspect that I have also managed to confuse my  
installation of Mac OS X.

I am going to take some time to clear my mind, order my thoughts, and  
start again from the beginning.

Many thanks to all who have tried to help me, and thank you to all who  
have put so much effort into open source software.
