Okay, so now I'm stuck.

I ran 'exiv2 -V', and it said that I have version 0.18 (can't remember if there
was a minor number) installed.

So I checked the latest version of exiv2 out of svn (using the instructions on
the website), compiled that via cmake, make, sudo make install. Then I
re-compiled digikam, via cmake, make, sudo make install.

Now if I hit Help->Component information, it says:

digiKam version 1.2.0 (rev.: 1098216)
LibExiv2: 0.18.2

I can't understand why the new version of libexiv2 isn't overwriting the old
version. Any thoughts? I also notice that the command line program 'exiv2'
doesn't get installed - I have to manually run it from the compiled src
directory. Perhaps the install is just silently failing?

I suspect that fixing this would fix the problem, but the solution might end up
being that I have to wait for the next release of Ubuntu - I notice that
version .19 of exiv2 is in the list of packages for Lucid.

Then again, maybe its time to try a different distro...
