You shouldn't have had to do all of that messing around at all.  Digikam 
since 0.7 has compiled cleanly on *Ubuntu without any steps beyond 
having the right -dev packages, unpacking the tarball/checking out svn, 
running make and make install.  Check the digikam site for the scripts 
that build it in your home directory (and install it there too, but that 
could be changed).
