SANE is a scanner project, not a printer project (that would be
gutenprint or some other project).
If you read the instructions, you will see that using configure with
BACKENDS=<list of backends to build> will create backends just for the
listed backends.
This might be useful to put in the readme, but people should also read
the general manual pages, the readme is not a substitute for them.
