I've just downloaded the file you are mentionning and found all files
(bootstrap.linux, boostrap.local, and CMakeLists.txt). What did you do
exactly after downloading? I suppose you uncompressed the archive. Did
it uncompress correctly?

As I said before, installing outside KDE install prefix is tricky. Can
you start a new thread in the mailing list for that? I can help you if
you get stuck, it's just that we may need to exchange a few more

I do not think that there is a way to prevent plugin from being built
(except for missing depencies, but some of those plugins have none).
However, you still can disable them in digiKam's configuration.

I do not know about other digiKam features.
