And where/how do I use these commands. I checked, and both programs are 
installed on my machine.

On the digiKam web-page "How to install from svn" it explicitly states 
the following commands to compile and install from svn

# make -f Makefile.cvs
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Where do automake and autoconf fit in, and which options and parameters 
need to go with them. I know I'm asking the obvious, but I don't know 
anything about programming and compiling other than the install- 
instructions given with various programsources

Major accidents are rare events due to many barriers, safeguards, and 
defences developed by modern technologies. But they continue to happen 
with saddening regularity, and their human and financial consequences 
are all too often catastrophic. --J. Reason, Managing the Risks of 
Organisational Accidents (1998).
