True. The problem is not so much gexiv2 but exiv2. Seems like all of gnome depends on it and f17 bumped it from 0.21
Otherwise I could have just installed the gexiv2 3.91 from f17.
I'm still looking at this but just about ready to give up.
I'd just wait for f17 except I'm still concerned about the NV3/4 problem which bit me on the alpha. If that gets solved
then I'll just upgrade.
