I'm using a Canon LiDE 35 (that's a different sane backend though) and 
just tried running "scanimage -L" -- to no avail. I was very surprised 
because it used to work on my NetBSD system in the past. I don't know 
for sure, but maybe the update to NetBSD-4.0 BETA broke it.

Anyway, I went ahead and first deleted, then built and installed 
libusb, sane-backends, and xsane fom pkgsrc-2006Q3 source. Now 
everything seems to be working again.

Just wondering: Does dmesg show your scanner? I get "ugen0: Canon 
CanoScan, rev 2.00/3.05, addr2".
