I couldn't find metacam anywhere, but a search through
showed the program jhead.  Jhead did indeed find the exif data in the
photo that did NOT display exif data in my album.  Since the timing on
this issue coincided exactly with compiling and installing gimp 2.4.6, I
assumed too quickly that a bug had been introduced. That is not the
case.  Apparently the gallery program has changed in some way that
requires a different setting on saving jpegs.

Sorry for the confusion cause and thanks for your help.
