[sane-devel] Canon Canoscan LiDE 400 support in Slackware

My old Epson flatbed scanner died. After looking on the supported devices
page I bought a Canon Canoscan LiDE 400 which is shown as having 'complete'
support. However, the pixma and other scanner module for Slackware don't
support this scanner.

sane-find-scanner identifies it, but scanimage -L fails to find it.

I downloaded the source code for Canon's stand-alone program interface,
butilt and installed it. Because I've used xsane for > 20 years I'd like to
use it with this new scanner, too.

Does the 1.0.28 backends support it? If not I'd appreciate help getting
xsane to regognize and use this device.
