due to it's complexity it's a difficult thing to have available two 
version of digikam. both libraries and kioslaves need to be of the 
correct version. I've been fooled a pair of times but similar enough but 
not quite equal version of DK.

Sincerely now what I do is to remove all installed DK and run a make 
install, setting the KDE environment such as it find DK

setting the environment in:

# access first user stuff, only later system installed one
export PATH=${HOME}/usr/bin:$PATH
export KDEDIR=${HOME}/usr
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=${HOME}/usr/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS

teorically this can be adapted to run all digikam components from the 
build directory, but setting it in a shell it's not sufficient because 
some stuff is started by kdeinit4 (which may have a different env)

Maybe other solved this problem more elegantly, I'm too interested.

P.S. you can hava a totally different user with X on vt8 and a stripped 
down kde or even xfce running.
