I see that *gphoto2 2.3.0 have been built for Ac, but they have been
misbuilt with(out) old libexif (i.e. libgphoto2 requires libexif 0.6.13,
but Ac has 0.6.12, so libgphoto2 built without libexif support, but
still requiring libexif 0.6.13 in .pc file - and that's the source of
libgphoto2 version detection problems in gphoto2 or other packages).

Conclusion: if libgphoto2 2.3.0 stays in Ac, libexif must be updated to
0.6.13 and libgphoto2 rebuilt afterwards.

There was no soname change in libexif, but some apps require _build_
time fixes (now headers must be included as <libexif/*.h> instead of
just <*.h>); rebuilding is not needed.
