you should send this types of question to the list, so the
ubuntu/debian guys can help, but here goes my try:
you only need sane-backends, and you should pass the right args to
./configure so that it will overwrite your existing sane install. (the
default is to install in /usr/local, but this gives two copies of
sane, and your linker might pick up the old one)
something like (all on one line):
/configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
or (on 64 bit system, also on one line):
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
note- these are for a fedora box, not ubuntu, so they might need
adjusting- looking at where your existing package put things and
configure --help are your best bet there.
then just make and make install
