All linux distributions separate now binary and devel packages to optimize space used on host computer.

Binary package include shared library component witch is used to link with host program. It cannot be used alone to compile a program witch will use the library. This package is used to run a program already compiled witch use the library.

Development package is used to _compile_ the host program ! This is completly different. When you install bin package, generally devel package is not installed. The automake/autonconf script from digiKam test if devel package is installed, not the bin package. 

Look README file to check all depencies...
