If I save from png to jpeg I have the meta-data in the new jpeg file.
So i can do: Raw --> png ---> jpg
But it was very strange for me to have not the exif in the jpeg and to have it 
in the png file because, as you say, jpeg is the first supported format, and 
because in the documentation of dcraw they said "If you choose JPEG as Save 
Format then the meta-data included in RAW file will be included in the JPEG 
files like Exif information."
So i think something is wrong somewhere.
