Yes! this works! Well, at least on Gentoo which allows to install 
"software A" without also installing "kitchen sink".

Now digiKam imports the XCF files without any problems and shows a 
default thumbnail instead of an actual thumbnail. And my "xcf.png" 
sidecar files show what the XCF file actually looks like. And the XCF 
file can be opened with GIMP-2.9 right from within digiKam.
