exiv2 needs to be updated and has a so bump.

Same thing for lcms but this one might be more complicated. This is a
major version bump from 1.X to 2.X and the source tarball and library
name have a 2 appended to them so I suspect major API changes where a
simple rebuild might not work.  However, 2.0 was released in May 2010
and 2.1 was released on the 1st of last December.  Probably many
projects build now against it, if not there's probably patches out
there. I haven't look into this any further.
