[sane-devel] Unable to Build Sane Backends

Once again, thanks for your nearly instantaneous reply. When I run
./autogen.sh I get what is shown below an apparent infinite loop leading to
a segmentation fault. I suspect that this is related to the highlighted
line below, but I am not clear on what to try ti address it.
Some specific information.
- this is from a download that I made today from
- I downloaded as a zip and expanded the zip into a newly-created
directory. I ran the command in that directory.
- prior to running the command I verified the presence of libtool-bin,
libusb-dev, autoconf, libjpeg-dev, and gettext,
- All were at or more advanced than the versions specified in the README
- I did not check for libgphoto2 or a C++11 compliant C++ compiler as I
only intended to rebuild the fujitso backend.
- I have rebooted and redownloaded the backends repository to an empty
directory with no change
- In order to capture the early error output I reran the command as
~/HETP/sane/backends-master$ ./autogen.sh > output.txt 2>&1
- my goal is to get a fujitsu backend rebuilt according to the
instructions to enable sanner-side compression as described in
- If there is an easier way to accomplish this I am open to suggestions.
