file /lib64/libpthread.so.0 exists.  (linked to /lib64/libpthread-2.15.so)

ok, and where is the binary?  
(this is my fourth or fifth program I'm trying to compile. Therefore I'm not 
very skilled...)

ok, according to the "INSTALL" file:

dom at linux-8k4r:~/scanbd/releases/1.2.1> USE_SANE=yes make -e clean all
make -C scanbuttond clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/dom/scanbd/releases/1.2.1/scanbuttond'

dbus-1-devel package is installed and contains following files:
(full list at http://pkgs.org/opensuse-12.2/opensuse-update-x86_64/dbus-1-
devel-1.5.12-4.10.1.x86_64.rpm.html )

then I tried:
dom at linux-8k4r:~/scanbd/releases/1.2.1> make clean all

ok, this is working.

make install does mostly well.

dom at linux-8k4r:~/scanbd/releases/1.2.1> su
linux-8k4r:/home/dom/scanbd/releases/1.2.1 # make install
echo "Make /usr/local/etc/scanbd"

cp scanbuttond/backends/meta.conf 
"/usr/local/etc/scanbd/scanbuttond/backends" || /bin/true
echo "Edit /etc/inetd.conf"
Edit /etc/inetd.conf

is that OK? Should I try to move forward with the next steps as described in
