And this is not the case. For ex, look in Qt for example libpng is
included like qslite3... and this not make a problem.
We don't have any way to control fine witch sqlite3 version used to
compile digiKam. We want a suitable program. This is the only solution
Also, digiKam do not provide a new sqlite3 program. We compile it with
the source code of shared libs. that all.
The source code of sqlite is the same that the official package. if a
security issue is found, we can just update source code and _validate_
the version included.
For KDE4, another way is done : we use QT4::SQLite plugin... which is
also compiled with a dedicated libsqlite version embeded in the
Note : Amarok also include libsqlite3 source code...
