I don't know the digikam build, but intuitively, not installing the
is correct. The system libkipi from kdegraphics should provide the public
headers, digikam is just bundling a private copy for itself to build
against and use, and those headers should not be installed to prevent
conflicts with the official ones.

Make sense. So I should throw away all other files that would normally go
into the -devel and just not provide a devel package?

Yes. An exception would be if digikam itself was extensible basing on
installed development headers but I'm not aware that this is the case.
