I built from the source package (after changing all references to
/usr/local/ to /usr) and the scanner worked with a page inside. Still,
scanimage -L and xscanimage -L fail to find the device.

I'll join the sane mail list and see if I can get this program to work with
xsane (even though it's not a loadable module). Using the 'PDF' button on
the front edge of the device brought up a glade dialog box with very limited
options. Apparently with a multipage document each page needs to be scanned
separately then concatenated into the whole document.
