Sorry but with digiKam this will fail. To compile development version of 
digiKam you need the newest as possible (svn version preferred) of exiv2 AND 
kexiv2 (from kdegraphics module). Unfortunately it is impossible to get 
properly working digiKam with two versions of exiv2 in system.

Note: if you set up all paths - especially those for libraries - all other 
programs will find local versions of (k)exiv2 and should work without 
problems. Exiv2 you can uninstall by force in package manager - ugly, 
unadvised but effective.
Bigger problem is with kexiv2 - I don't know I you can compile and install 
this part solo, without support from svn version of whole kdegraphics, kdelibs
