well got a static tarball from gitlab iirc, is dated 2019-09-14 15:54:37 -0700
i had hoped that once the release hit the skids the changes would slow
down a bit, wishful thinking on my part.

if g++-5.4.0 is ancient 4.9.0 must be pre-historic :-)

have yet to do anything beyond make all check which all tests run pass.
made following casts to the 3 offending pow errors i encountered. i believe
they are safe from inadvertently changing the parameter, but would like
an expert to concur (opine).
2 in backend/genesys.cc
around 761 line changed from
value = gamma_max * pow ((float) i / size, 1.0 / gamma);
value = gamma_max * pow ((float) i / size, (float) 1.0 / gamma);
around 1211 line changed from
exposure_factor = pow (2, tgtime); /* todo: originally, this is always 2^0 ! */
exposure_factor = pow ((double) 2, (double) tgtime); /* todo: originally, this is always 2^0 !
1 in backend/genesys_low.cc
line around 157 changed from
pixels_per_line, lines, (int) pow (2, depth) - 1);
pixels_per_line, lines, (int) pow ((double) 2, (double) depth) - 1);
i actually wrapped each in a conditional for solaris, but have yet to rebuild
will submit the diffs when i've actually done a scan or 4.
as for the configure autofoo stuff; yeah that was a bit of a struggle and still
have a problem not having the newest and greatest libtool 2.4.6. is there a
requirement for 2.4.6 unmet with an older (err ancient) version like 2.2.6?
note: looks like LT_PREREQ([2.4.6]) was added at sane-backends-master-e13b80fa,
sane-backends-1.0.27 had no LT_PREREQ criterion at all.
