I assume there have been no issues because of this
(otherwise you would have told us).

Now I think about --enable-pthread for the next openSUSE version
and if there are bug reports because of this I could switch back
to the default.

I wonder why there is no reply from sane-backends package maintainers
of other Linux distributions - perhaps everybody on summer vacation?
