By default, saned looks for saned.conf in the directory that was
specified at build time. For most Linux distributions this will be
/etc/sane.d, the result of passing a --configdir=/etc option to the
configure script (which tags the /sane.d part on by itself).
Using the *normal* build and install procedures that are part of
sane-backends, there is *no* way you would get an /etc/saned.conf.
Any chance you put this there yourself?
If you really want to use /etc/saned.conf, you need to use
SANE_CONFIG_DIR=/etc saned ...
As far as file contents is concerned, both are processed in the same
way. It only a matter of which one is used and, as said, the default
is to use the first.
Hope this helps,
