sane-frontends is no longer maintained by the SANE project, see the
"Future of sane-frontends" thread on sane-devel, in particular

Nevertheless we (i.e. openSUSE/Novell) still provide a non-official
sane-frontends package in our "openSUSE:11.3:Contrib" repository.

A quick smoke test on my openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 system using "xscanimage"
works for me but I didn't try out any other program (like "scanadf")
but perhaps it still works for you.
