I am running debian sarge, so it is  gcc -v

I would have thought so ;-).

Overall it seems that it got pretty far.
Re-reading the error message a couple of times led me
to the following work-around:
  cp digikam_export.h /home/abaecker/NBB/SOFTWARE/digikam3/include

Then the whole compile works fine and no problems when running!

Now back to the workflow:

My first impression on the the new "Comments & Tags" sidebar is
*very* positive - you are really doing an excellent job!!

Apart from the tagging of all selected images (which you already
mentioned that it will be more difficult to implement)
I am wondering whether the fastest way of tagging and rating
a sequence of individual pictures would be via the keyboard. E.g.:
 - pressing 0-5  in the window with thumbnails assigns the rating
 - pressing any letter "a-z/A-Z" (which could correspond to the first
   letter in a tag) assigns (or better: toggle) the tick for the tag

By this one could quickly go through all images with the cursor
keys and assign everything without a single mouse move ...

Just some thoughts (comments welcome!) ...

Best, Arnd
