I sent an email about that on kde imaging list.
With their new check for exiv2-0.12, it doesn't work by default because 
pkg-config can't find exiv2.
There's a workaround : add this in the script (with other exports) :
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$DIGIKAMDEST/lib/pkgconfig

I will add that on the digikam website
