Hey Max
looks like libtool is missing. sudo apt-get install libtool

how to make sure the installed version is the one launched when clicked on the icon? In Shotwell the version shows 0.23.5

Not to be rude, but I don't think the point of this mailing list is
individual compilation support. There's tons of documentation on
building packages on linux in general, so don't be shy to at least
google the error message first. If it's really shotwell specific, then
yes, this is absolutely the place for.
I certainly don't want to discourage people from helping to test and I
don't want to intimidate anyone to ask for help if a build doesn't work
right away - we all had to learn it - but I do want to encourage a
sustainable helping culture.

I've compiled your version before, so I didn't expect a new dependency hell to break out since the last time.

Look, I don't want to be condescending either, but it's 32 degrees C + humid here and that's around midnight. there is no aircon. It's hard to focus a thought here and it doesn't help when the documentation tells you to run ./configure and that isn't even there.

sudo apt-get install build-essentials

build-essential was already installed, that wasn't the issue.

and if a package already exists that you want to recompile, chances are
high that you'll get all or most dependencies from the version in the
repository. Apt has a built in command to install build dependencies:

sudo apt-get build-dep shotwell

ok, then why not including this step in the INSTALL?
