I pulled the current git of sane-backend from

I did
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu
--sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var  --
make install

now when I run "scanimage -L" it can't see my scanner. Is there a flag
I need to use other drivers than the ones it compiles as the brother
printer driver is a binary package?
