	* README.linux: Added paragraph about excessive warnings due to glibc
	  bug (from Peter Kirchgessner).
	* TODO: Removed entry about shared libs not working on AIX. Added entry
	  about PTAL checks. Removed entry about DBG and microtek2. Added entry
	  about dc210 and jpeg functions. Added entry about using strchr()
	  instead of index().
	* sane.lsm: Added NEC.
	* backend/microtek2.c: (from karsten.festag@t-online.de (Karsten

	  warnings.

try to disable idescsi.

Other Information
=================
Excessive warnings "pointer of type `void *' used in arithmetic":
Some versions of glibc generate these warnings not related to SANE
source code. To suppress these warnings do
export CFLAGS="-g -O2 -D__NO_STRING_INLINES"
and rerun configure.
