Hi Paristo,
My guess is you might be better off spending your time, removing and
re-installing exiv2 (0.16-pre), libs, and digikam from SVN.  You
already said the SVN version works fine, but runs slow because of
"--debug complile".  You should then reinstall everything without the
debug options.

With that said, I have written a basic python program that can do
system operations (like run exiv2 -M...) on files (it's really a
glorified shell script).  It sounds like it would work in your case.
Also you need to know a little bit about python programming to make it
work right and it can be very dangerous to your filesystem if you mess
up (ie. backup and know what you are doing). Let me know if you want

Again, based on your post, I think you are better off removing all
digikam and related stuff, then re-installing the SVN.
Good Luck, Geoff
