Exiv2 0.25 as used by ubuntu 18.04 and the upcoming 18.10 is really
obsolete and this brings all kinds of annoying problems with darktable -
inability to recognize lenses and so on.
Even the current package in 18.10 is obsolete.

Update to exiv2 version 0.26
Status in exiv2 package in Ubuntu:
0.26 was released in April
"This release contains a large collection of new features, new lenses
and bugfixes across all areas of Exiv2. "
Presumably debian stretch freeze interfered with a prompter update
Currently in debian exp here:
I was hoping to to get a new feature release of the very popular
Digikam (5.7.0) into artful under a FFE, but that has bumped the
minimum exiv2 build depend from 0.25 -> 0.26.
If due to rdeps etc an update in artful turns out not to be possible,
I would like to target this for early in 18.04 LTS cycle.
