I think the core of the problem is in libdc1394: looking at the code,
it looks like it can use various internal backends, one of which being
usb. So the symbol usb_init is not intended to be public! The library
leaks internal symbol...

There are various solutions, one which which is not a real solution
but which involves only digikam would be to have libusb early on
the link line; as libraries are guaranteed to be searched from left 
to right. basically it's what the LD_PRELOAD trick does, but at run

It would imply modifying the link of digikam, but also of showfoto
and may be other binaries I am not aware of.
