I just committed a patch I carried much too long downstream in Fedora,
which enables building packages of sane-backends with locking enabled as
a non-root user(*).

When I pushed this commit, I got this warning message:

remote: *** A Makefile was modified; please ./configure && make on Alioth
remote: *** Contact sane-devel if you don't know what to do

Would anybody fill me on on what I should do now?

    improve install-lockpath target
    Make install process robust against problems with setting group on the
    sane lock directory. This can e.g. happen if packaging sane-backends and
    building as a user other than root.

Ever noticed that common sense isn't really all that common?
