Educated guess: your libsane is really libsane-v4l and not libsane-dll.
Other possibility: /usr/lib/sane is in ld.so.conf which it shouldn't.

Most Linux distributions get these points right these days.  If you've
built from source though, there's a good chance that the first issue is
at play here.  Make sure that you /usr/lib/libsane.so.1.0.22 is the same
as your /usr/lib/sane/libsane-dll.so.1.0.22.

Replace version numbers where appropriate.  Ditto for library locations
(/usr/local/lib, /usr/lib/$arch).

Hope this helps,
