I compiled digiKam 0.10.0 with MacPorts and provided my Portfile for
inclusion in the MacPorts system:

I don't know if you already use MacPorts, but searching and installing
all the dependencies by hand sounds like way too much work to me.

I have a Portfile for "beta 2", which I now changed to "beta 3", and
attached to this e-mail.

The problem is, as mentioned in the comment to the Portfile, that "beta
2" did not run stable at all on my Mac. Similarly, "beta 2" and "beta3"
don't run at all on my computer in Debian unstable (PPC). I also tried
to compile both myself, but then most menu entries where missing and no
thumbnails displayed in the albums.

I haven't finished compiling "beta 3" on Mac OS yet, but since that
might take a few hours, I'm already sending this e-mail now. At least
it downloaded the sources and started compiling.

For just testing the basic digiKam functionality, it might be easier to
download a GNU/Linux live CD, though. You can install additional
software like digiKam in a live system (no installation on hard disk)
with e.g. Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu.com/). Ubuntu 9.04 contains a
working DigiKam 0.10.0 package (which for me seems much more stable
than the same version on Mac OS).
