Hmm, I think maybe I copied the extracted files over to another
directory before they finished extracting completely. So completely
user error. Sorry! Now all the files are as expected.

The next time I have a reason to test digiKam from git, may I take you
up on your kind offer at that point?

With "make" rather than cmake usually there is a ./configure file that
allows setting of certain options. Is there something similiar with

The only kipi plugin I actually use is import/export from/to remote
computer (which is a strange label for exporting images to another
drive on my own computer, but that's what the plugin is called). A
long time ago I built digikam without most of the kipi plugins by
deleting the individual plugin build folders. But I forget exactly
what I did and was hoping there were configurable options.

It seems that every time I upgrade digiKam all those plugins get
re-enabled again.
