Well, don't know where is the  best to tell about it :

I have no succes in my tentative to compile Digikam from svn on debian/ppc 

As I understand it, the issue is related to libxrender and libtool :

Making all in jpegutils

libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libXrender.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[4]: *** [libjpegutils.la] Erreur 1

The fact is that libxrender-dev ( doesn't provide 
any 'libXrender.la' file anymore :

/usr/share/doc/libxrender-dev/changelog.Debian.gz : 
  * In accordance with all other X libraries, stop shipping Libtool .la file.

If the problem is known, is there a known solution ?

What is possible to do to go ahead without this .la file ?
