It works exactly like you said! :-) Thanks a lot!

I see the epjitsu library (compiled version is libsane-epjitsu.so.1.0.21).

(It's probably without interest but few files have execute rights in
backend directory: sm3840.c, sm3840.h, sm3840_lib.c, sm3840_lib.h,
sm3840_scan.c, stv680.conf.in, stv680.h)

If it's useful for someone else in the future:
- I commented the line /usr/local/lib in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/libc.conf
- execute `ldconfig` as root
- download the snapshot with git (available in git-core package under debian)
- `./configure`
- `make`
- `make install`

And then:
stephane at degtyarov:/tmp/sane-backends $ /usr/local/bin/scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

stephane at degtyarov:/tmp/sane-backends $ scanimage -L
device `epkowa:interpreter:001:005' is a Epson Perfection V10/V100
flatbed scanner

Now, the hard work starts (understand the generated log files and the
source code)!
