[sane-devel] "No: command not found" when building sane-backends

I'm trying to build sane-backends cloned from the Git repository.  This 
inevitably fails with the following error:

Making all in doc
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/psy/git/sane-backends/doc'
no -L eps figs/area.fig figs/area.eps
make[1]: no: Command not found
Makefile:972: recipe for target 'figs/area.eps' failed
make[1]: *** [figs/area.eps] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/psy/git/sane-backends/doc'
Makefile:542: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

The Sane FAQ at <https://ljm.home.xs4all.nl/SANE-faq.html#36> addresses this 
problem for the case of building Xsane, but not sane-backends.  The suggested 
solution (passing --disable-nls to the configure script) has no effect.

It seems this problem has been reported elsewhere on the web (e.g., <https://
lists.debian.org/debian-user/2016/08/msg00484.html> and <http://superuser.com/
questions/1101439/error-building-sane-backend-on-debian>) but no solutions 
have been posted.  Can anyone help?

I am using openSUSE 42.1 on an x86-64 system.
