No, something like @REGMGR_LIBS@ is normally replaced after ./configure.
 Without looking at any of the code, I suspect a typo.  My guess is that
it should be @RESMGR_LIBS at .
Just checked, it's been fixed already. ;-)

SANE_STATUS_WARMING_UP is one of the statusses that has been considered
for addition to the API.  IIRC, sane-backends-1.0.21 would ship without
any API changes (and the "#if 0" indicates that it will), so it appears
you have found a bug in scanadf.c.

Hope this helps,
