You cannot change the exiv library to 0.25 and hope that digiKam will
accept it ))

There are strict rules when program is linked and every single time
there is a library update, you must also recompile the program which
depends on it.

This happens a lot on my machine, when packages from repository are
updated, I need to recompile my digiKam, otherwise it does not start.

So you need exiv 0.25 corresponding libkexiv2-14 and digikam compiled
against these libraries.
