Hi,

I have done some compilation tests on several platforms and the
results are pretty good. Only one compilation problem and this one is
not related to SANE. Some problems with running scanimage, however.
The backend maintainers have been informed. I can't test actual
scanning on most of the platforms. That'ńs why there are some question
marks. The table is the same as on the mostang.com website.

Platform          Compiler      SCSI   USB    Shared  dynamic X frontends
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Linux 2.4 i386    gcc 2.95.2    yes    yes    yes     yes     yes
Linux 2.2 i386    gcc 2.95.2    yes    yes(1) yes     yes     yes
FreeBSD 4.3 i386  gcc 2.95.3    yes    yes(2) yes     yes     yes
AIX 4.3 PPC (3)   cc            yes(?) no(?)  yes     yes     ?
AIX 4.3 PPC       gcc 2.95.2    yes(?) no(?)  yes(4)  yes(4)  ?
Solaris 2.7 Sparc gcc 2.95      yes(?) no(?)  yes     yes     yes
Solaris 2.7 Sparc ucbcc         yes(?) no(?)  yes     yes     no(5)
Irix 6.2 MIPS     cc            yes(?) no(?)  yes     yes     yes


(1) Only with newer Linux versions or USB backport.
(2) At least mustek_usb gets stuck somewhere in the middle of the USB
    communication.
(3) scanimage -L results in a segfault in snapscan.c (sane_init).
(4) sane-hp fails to load because of assert problems
(5) Problems with glib (inside glib.h).

?       Can't test
yes(?)  Can't test but looks like it will work
no(?)   Can't test but looks like it won't work

Bye,
