These libraries are not yet released. so it's always time to fix API
until KDE4.1. After, the BC for libkexiv2/libkipi/libkdcraw need to be

I think it's not a problem for libkipi and libkdcraw. perhaps
libkexiv2 need to be fixed to extract GPS info from XMP.

For libkdcraw, we need to use libraw instead a dcraw.c. I think we can
do it without to break BC.

KDE4.1. These libraries will be published with KDE now. This have
advantages and disadvantages of course.
