I had a go at compiling xsane - in addition to the usual compile environment, the following headers/libs were required:
sane, usb, jpeg, tiff, gtk1.2/gtk2, x, gimp
[sane = sane-backend, xsane = sane-frontend]
I didn't have the gimp headers so I couldn't compile to scan directly from gimp, but I managed to compile xscanimage.
Anyway, xscanimage brought up a basic scanning window with image preview, resolution adjustment and colour modes and the mydsl gimp extension opened the resulting image file without problems.
Edit: I found gimp headers and after linking xscanimage to gimp plug-ins, I could scan from inside the mydsl gimp extension.
Note: I didn't see any conf/lib files for acer or benq in the sane-backend, so I don't know if this will work for your scanner or not.
