I tired to setup this version on my Debain Wheezy system.
Unfortunatelly, I'm not keen on compilation and setup of application :-(

In Readme, it is OK for §1.

But for §2, which file scanbd_dbus.confmust be copied?wher is it  created by 
your bundle?
2) scanbd_dbus.conf

copy this file into the dbus system-bus configuration directory 
(/etc/dbus-1/system.d/ or /usr/local/etc/dbus-1/system.d/),
then restart dbus and hald.

Then is ther an install command to apply, in user or in su mode? often there 
is a ./configure, a make all and an install, isn't it?

> scanbd is a scanner button daemon. It polls the scanner buttons looking

> paper inserts / removals and at the same time allows
> also scan-applications to access the scanners. If buttons are pressed,
> etc., various actions can be submitted (scan, copy, email, ...) via
> action scripts. The function knob values are passed to the
> action-scripts as well. Scan actions are also signaled via dbus. This
> can be useful for foreign applications. Scans can also be triggered via
> dbus from foreign applications.
> On platforms which support signaling of dynamic device insertion /
> removal (libudev, dbus, hal) scanbd supports this as well.
> scanbd can use all sane-backends or some special backends from the (old)
> scanbuttond project.
> Supported platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD
