It seems there is a problem with ldconfig. I have no experiences with
ldconfig in combination with SANE.

If you want to leave 1.0.23 SANE libs in /usr/local/lib64, please try to
create symbolic links from your self compiled libs to /usr/lib64/:
'sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib64/libsane.so.1.0.23
'sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib64/libsane.so.1.0.23 /usr/lib64/libsane.so'
'sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib64/libsane.so.1.0.23 /usr/lib64/libsane.so.1'
'sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib64/sane/libsane-pixma.la

If you want to remove the self created symbolic links, you should
save/rename these files:
/usr/lib64/libsane.so, /usr/lib64/libsane.so.1,

I was using symbolic links before I found the hint of the additional
parameters for config. I never had problems with both versions. You can
find both versions described in the mailing list.
