Eh, that's probably non-free software.
For some folks that matters ;-)

What's different between that Fedora Live CD and your current Gentoo
system?  If you can provide, for example, the output of `scanimage -L`
when using that Live CD, we will at least be able to see what backend
(and sane-backends version) worked fine for you.

Hope this helps,
