- disable_rpath.patch -> no longer needed
The SANE_LINKER_RPATH macro was unsued and removed in f80cf1db,
derived files were synced in d853463e.
- fix_avahi_error_paths.patch -> applied
- dll_backend_conf.patch -> applied w/ modifications
The pint backend remains enabled.
- frontend_libs.patch -> applied change to Makefile.am
The Makefile.in file will be updated later. The LIBS variable
should be empty at build time, i.e. in the Makefile.
- libsane_deps.patch -> investigate post-release
I don't have the time right now to check the details of the impact
of this for the various build scenarios we support.
- multiarch_manpages_libdir.patch -> won't apply
This doesn't take --libdir/--prefix configure time options into
- sane-config_and_pkg-config_fixes.patch -> investigate post-release
See my comment for libsane_deps.patch.
And here's a little reminder for those who missed the first post

If you submit patches, please submit *one* patch per bug tracker item.
I know that's a pain but it will make dealing with them easier to track.
Hope this helps,
