The fact that your Epson Perfection V500 Photo
requires DFSG non-free iscan-plugin-gt-x770
as is documented at
This plugin is only available in binary format for i386 and amd64
architectures AFAIK. You can get it via the "Package Download Page"
on the site you mentioned.
Sorry to disappoint you. Please contact the vendor about support for
other architectures. Without source code, there is nothing the SANE
project can do to help you.
