here's a possible solution to installing digikam from svn and digikam from 
your distro and running them:

1) when you install digikam from svn install to a local prefix. for eg:
./configure --enable-debug --prefix=/home/user/Local/
make install

2) create a ~/.digikam_bashrc file (assuming you run bash shell):
export KDEDIRS=/home/user/Local:$KDEDIRS
export PATH=/home/user/Local/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/Local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

3) whenever you want to run digikam from svn:
  open a terminal
  $ source ~/.digikam_bashrc
  $ kdeinit
  $ digikam
