This would appear to be a problem with the new viewer kipi plugin that a
few people have reported in the last couple of days.

The reason it works you you Angelo is that presumably you have libkipi
in a standard location (e.g. installed from RPM etc.)

This is because the viewer plugin was originally designed to be built
outside of the kipi plugins structure but now it is trying to be build
inside it. I think it needs some modification.

For now, edit the Makefile.am in libs folder to remove the viewer subdir
and all should build OK until it is fixed properly.


PS I've not actually looked at this problem properly so I'm kinda just
guessing :)
