I am testing out the latest Kubuntu and installing Digikam from SVN to
triage a few specific bugs. After running cmake, I do not seem to have
a makefile. There is also a cmake error that it says is specifically
for developers:

Should I worry about that error? Is there anything that I can do to
build Digikam? Thanks.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
