First problem encountered...

Following the instructions given at
http://www.digikam.org/drupal/download/SvnAlongStable  I've been able to
get as far as "Patch CMakeLists.txt to be able to build standalone.
Download appended patch and place it in your development folder." I
found the original CMakeLists.txt on my boat trunk/libkeeiv2/ and, I
found the patch via the link:

Index: CMakeLists.txt 

--- CMakeLists.txt	(Revision 1117624)
+++ CMakeLists.txt	(Arbeitskopie)
@@ -1,5 +1,20 @@
+# Preview acess was added in Exiv2 0.18
+# IMPORTANT : Several fixes done in 0.19. Set as default version when KDE 4.4 will be released
+set(EXIV2_MIN_VERSION "0.18")
+macro_log_feature(EXIV2_FOUND "Exiv2" "A library to access image metadata" "http://www.exiv2.org" FALSE ${EXIV2_MIN_VERSION} "Required to build libkexiv2 and gwenview.")
 # =======================================================
 # Information to update before to release this library.

I assume that I copy the above and paste it into CMakeLists.txt. Is this
correct? Where do I append it? At the beginning? At the end?
