sane/scanimage on SCO UNIX

I need to be able to scan in documents onto my SCO Openserver 5.0.7 using a command line interface. I need the command line as I have to make it work from a legacy character app running on the SCO box. So far the only thing I have found is sane and its command line utiliity scanimage. The sane-project.org website says that it would work on any UNIX and lists SCO as one of them. However I can't seem to find any google searches relating to running them on SCO.
My question is has anyone had any success installing and/or running sane and scanimage on SCO? Also any suggestions on what hardward would work best? If not these have I missed something else that would work?

Thanks
Tom

You can use pkgadd

pkgadd -d `pwd`/sane-1.0.2.pkg

where can I find the installable package sane-1.0.2.pkg?
so far all I have been able to find is the source code that I have to compile & install manually

finally tracked down sane-1.0.7 on the skunkworks server.
wanted a later version that supported a USB scanner but that doesn't look like it is in the cards.
don't know if I will get in over my head but I am trying to compile the latest versions of sane and libusb on my system to get USB support but so far haven't had much luck.
