New description:

 There is an issue installing the current version of libexif if the
 doxygen program is not available. The installation will fail.

 A link to the discussion, which includes a fix is here:

Comment:

 The fix for this is trivial.  Can be done with an sed.  I'll have to look
 in my scripts.  Should be done within the next couple days.

 The include dir thing I mentioned in that thread is not a bug.  Some
 packages using libexif (such as libgphoto2 and gthumb) had been
 inconsistent in there inclusion of libexif headers.  I.e., sometimes

 {{{
 #include <libexif/exif.h>
 }}}

 and other times

 {{{
 #include <exif.h>
 }}}

 I think this became a problem because before the .pc files were added,
 packages were always adding {{{-I/usr/include/libexif}}} or equivalent to
 the command line.

 This has been cleared up in gthumb for sure.  Possibly libgphoto2, too,
 but I don't recall immediately.
