Olaf, thanks for info.  

I will submit change request as patches to the repository.

I believe most changes are straight forward and require only the
simplest review.

I've quickly looked over the files that are in the attachment to
#313854[1].  The configure and build logs are not particularly helpful
other than illustrating what warnings exist.  The requested changes in
SANE.Modification.for.LSB.Integration.txt are in a format that make them
very unlikely to be applied.

Glen, to improve your chances of these changes to be applied provide
them as patches to the latest code in git, one for each issue you want
addressed.  Many of the backend developers are volunteers.  If applying
a fix takes more than reviewing a changeset and feeding it to patch (or
git am), it is not likely to get applied.

In another post you mentioned downloading the daily build but you can
save yourself a lot of hassle by just cloning the git repository[2] and
work from there.  If you're unfamiliar with git, the first two chapters
of the Pro Git book[3] are more already than you need to get going.
