The software is now available on the new location (redirected to by
the old). A slightly newer version is offered there:
From the vendor's changelog:
Changes from version 0.9 to 0.9.1
* Exiv2 library
- 0000451: [exif] Fixed bug where an invalid Exif tag was created for
the user comment, when the tag was newly added to an image.
(Thanks to Anatoliy Kovalenko for reporting this bug)
- Added enum MetadataId and Image::supportsMetadata() to check what
metadata an image class supports. Changed CrwImage to silently
ignore calls to Iptc related functions instead of throwing an Error.
(Thanks to Will Stokes for suggesting the check feature)
- Cleaned up some #include statements (mentioned here because this
may lead to unexpected compiler errors).
The port compiled cleanly on beast.freebsd.org (an Alpha machine), so,
I think, it can be unmarked broken on Alpha.
BTW, are we supposed to install the .la library file at all?
