I too had this issue, although my need for exiv2 was gnome-commander. 
Thus I too removed exiv2 and its dependents. As I did not need the 
packages I have left them uninstalled. I think the issue is a change in 
the exiv2 rpm spec file in regards to libraries needed or included, thus 
as both come from rf - suggest post a request to them. HTH
