I hate to reply to myself, but ...

digikam, if built from source, will use /usr/local for installation prefix. 
This will break it and you won't get to see any images in your folders.

To fix the problem use:

rm CMakeCache.txt
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde-config --prefix`

Thanks to @cryogenic for the tip. :)
