Since I upgraded my BSD-box to the recent 10.0 release, I m not able to 
scan any document using the port 'hplip', as i used to when running the 
9.2 release.

hp-scan failed on the following error:

hp-scan -otest.png
Using device: hpaio:/usb/Officejet_4500_G510a-f?serial=CN04EF11S905H2

error: Scanning disabled in build. Exiting

First, I had to rebuild the port to switch on the 'scanning feature', 
which is not available by the binary package, but scanning still fails.

root at dmarec:/usr/ports/print/hplip # make showconfig
===> The following configuration options are available for hplip-3.14.1:
      DOCS=off: Build and/or install documentation
      FAX=off: PC Send Fax support
      QT=off: Graphical User Interface (Qt 4)
      SCAN=on: Scanning support
      SNMP=off: Network/JetDirect support
      XSANE=off: Install XSane for scanning (requires SCAN)
===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings

I also tried to activate XSane,
- with the help of the new binary package installation-
but the error still occurs.

Any clue ?
