No, unfortunately not.

I can see images on my camera, but not in the albums. I can open images with 
showfoto, though, and see the thumbnails during the "create all thumbnails" 
Moreover, when I check the config dialog of digikam, I see "0 kipi plugins 
found", although they were compiled and installed from svn.

Finally, I did a fresh checkout, which gave me some more trouble: While the 
cmake script for the graphics folder says "congratulations! all external 
packages have been found", make fails, with the message
