Sane NIASH chipset support

I bet I'm not the only one out here stuck with a NIASH chipset in my scanner... they appear to have been put in HP ScanJet 3300c 's and 3400c 's as well as some other random scanners. This chipset isn't supported by default by sane, so it needs to be patched to get these scanners to work. So here's my quick and dirty PKGBUILD that does this patch before compiling.

#Contributor: Simo L. <neotuli AT yahoo DOT com>
pkgname=sane
pkgver=1.0.14
pkgrel=4
pkgdesc="Scanner Access Now Easy...with NIASH"
depends=('libjpeg' 'libieee1284' 'libusb' 'bash')
source=(ftp://ftp.mostang.com/pub/$pkgname/$pkgname-backends-$pkgver/$pkgname-backends-$pkgver.tar.gz http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/hp3300backend/backend-20031221_1.tar.gz)
url="http://www.sane-project.org"
install=$pkgname.install
backup=(etc/hotplug/usb/libusbscanner etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap)
md5sums=('7ae5bf91aea34ef7956df6f53cf073bd')

build() {
  cd $startdir
#  tar --use-compress-program=gzip -xf backend-20031221_1.tar.gz
  cd $startdir/src/backend
  ./patch-sane.sh ../$pkgname-backends-$pkgver
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-backends-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
  /usr/bin/make || return 1
  /usr/bin/make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install

    # install hotplug scripts
    /bin/mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/etc/hotplug/usb
    /bin/install -m0644 tools/hotplug/libusbscanner 
            $startdir/pkg/etc/hotplug/usb/libusbscanner
    /bin/install -m0644 tools/hotplug/libsane.usermap 
            $startdir/pkg/etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap
}
# vim: ts=2 sw=2 et ft=sh

Hope this is of help to someone.
