I don't know why exactly. Marcel, are you an explaination for that ?

Normally, digiKam is linked with the first exiv2 version found in the system. 
Perhaps because the header file are at the same place (mixed in fact and the 
linker mix both library to solve depencies)

Andreas, are you an explaination about why both Exiv2 library release 
installed in the system is not cleanly resolved by linker ? Perhaps we need a 
lib version tag in shared libexiv2.so file (Not checked the current 
implementation of makefile. fix me if it's already done).
