Shotwell 0.10 has a nasty event name corruption bug so I thought I would try to compile 0.12 from source.

I installed the dependencies:
# yum install vala GConf2-devel libgee-devel libgexiv2-devel glib2-devel gstreamer-devel gstreamer-plugins-base-devel
gtk3-devel libgudev1-devel libexif-devel libgphoto2-devel LibRaw-devel libsoup-devel libstdc++-devel libxml2-devel
rest-devel sqlite-devel m4 unique3-devel webkitgtk3-devel

Then installed the source and tried to build:
$ git clone git://yorba.org/shotwell

$ cd shotwell
$ ./configure
Configured.  Type 'make' to build, 'make install' to install.
$ make
Requested 'gexiv2 >= 0.3.92' but version of GExiv2 is 0.2.2
make: *** [pkgcheck] Error 1

I thought I saw 0.3.91 available in F17 but that would fail as well.

Has anybody managed to compile Shotwell 0.12 on F16 successfully?
