Thank you, everyone!

You guys are an awesome community. Special thanks to Stef and Paul. The 
scanner is up and running. It was those libsane.s files. Somehow I 
missed the info about searching them all down and removing them. So, 
after fixing some permission issues (sane and xsane) it looks pretty 
good. Stef, what is the maximum resolution you have successfully scanned 
in? I tried with 4800 as a test and xsane locked up. It could be my weak 
office computer, however.

Thanks again for all the help.
