i used the one by Uwe Zimmermann (the api is quite stable - at least
if you're using the 0.1.12 version, which hasn't been updated a lot).
i've got it working on arm-linux without any problems (iirc).  if
you're interested in doing isochronous or asynchronous i/o, you might
want to go with the latest devel branch (or even openusb, which is
another project altogether).  there is libusb-compat library that
wraps the devel version to make porting very easy, but i've never had
the need for it.
