all compile fine under Mandriva 2007.1

Note to Translators : libkdcraw have a small libkdcraw.po file to translate
because there is a settings widget used by digiKam configuration panel.

> --------------------------------
> General :
> - DigikamImagePlugins have been merged into digiKam. It is easier to

> one package for all and nobody will search for promised features that are
> not
> installed anymore. Image plugins translations are hosted to digikam.pofile
> instead a .po file for each tool.
> - New depency to libkdcraw shared library used to decode RAW file. This
> library is shared between digiKam and kipi-plugins. The internal dcraw
> version used is 8.60. digiKam now supports all recent digital camera RAW
> files released at PMA 2007.
> - Make icon size in sidebars configurable to allow more entries to be
> presented.
> - Reduce icon size of album view and make them configurable using a slider
> in
> status bar.
> - Removing direct Exiv2 library depency. libkexiv2 interface is used
> everywhere instead.

> Effect plugin.
