ok, this is 0.12 and what I expected.
So I looked into the check of ./configure

first there is a test for exiv2-config this results to:
"checking for exiv2-config... /home/digi/digikamSVN/bin/exiv2-config"

This is the correct version. To help configure you could also use the 
env-variable $EXIV2_CONFIG but its not necessary.

But now ./configure does not make anything useful with exiv2-config (like 
checking the version). No, instead it uses now pkg-config to check the 
version of exiv2.

That check results to
"checking for exiv2 >= 0.12... no"

Question stays what overwrites your PKG_CONFIG_PATH?

[search mode]
# KIPI support (KDE Image Plugin Interface)

if test "$PKGCONFIGFOUND" = "yes" ; then
   # check for libkipi

   if test "$prefix" != "$kde_libs_prefix"; then

ups - thats bitter! kipi check is before exiv2 test. THAT kills your global 
enviroment (and I think this is bad style and a BUG)

With current configure checks you can only use ONE global exiv2 lib.

Can you try this hack:
Please change these lines of your digikam build script from

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure --prefix=$DIGIKAMDEST --with-extra-includes=$DIGIKAMDEST/include --with-extra-libs=$DIGIKAMDEST/lib
make -j 4


make -f Makefile.cvs
PKGCONFIGFOUND="no" ./configure --prefix=$DIGIKAMDEST --with-extra-includes=$DIGIKAMDEST/include --with-extra-libs=$DIGIKAMDEST/lib
make -j 4

and tell us what configure now tells about the exiv2 check.
