Description of problem:
sane-backends shouldn't depend on gphoto2. Sure, there's a gphoto backend,
that sane can make use of. But it shouldn't be mandatory to have it there
in order to use any of the other sane backends. Currently you're effectively
saying that I can't scan anything in unless I also have photo management
software (which I neither need or want) installed, which is just blatantly

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

gphoto2 is not a photo management program (unlike gphoto version 1), but a
library (and a tiny cmdline program) to access images on digital cameras.
