The example at http://www.exiv2.org/example1.html prints some warnings with my compiler on Mac OS X.

I recommend you build the sample applications and take a look at the arguments passed when he builds samples/exifprint
cd exiv2 ; make config ; ./configure ; make ; make samples
I suspect there are additional arguments you'll have to pass. You may have to export CC=c++ as I think ./configure uses g++ by default. I'm not too sure about the differences between the compilers gcc, g++ and c++. However the samples build and pass our test suite on MacOS-X/Lion (and other MacOS-X versions).
I'm away from my iMac today. I've assigned this issue to myself and I'll investigate later in the week when I have access to my iMac. Perhaps you could update this issue with any discoveries you make.

#3 Updated by Robin Mills about 6 years ago
I built exiv2 from the trunk and installed it:
cd exiv2 ; make configure ; ./configure; make ; sudo make install
Compile/link exifprint.cpp (from http://www.exiv2.org/example1.html) is:
$ g++ exifprint.cpp -lexiv2 -o exifprint
I've tried a loop with g++, c++ and gcc. Although those are the same executable, gcc doesn't appear to link the C++ std run-time library.
$ for c in g++ c++ gcc; do rm
rf exifprint ; echo -- $c --- ; $c exifprint.cpp lexiv2 -o exifprint 2>&1 | head -2 ; ./exifprint ~/R.jpg | head -1 ; done g++ ---
Exif.Image.ImageDescription 0x010e Ascii 32
--- c++ ---
Exif.Image.ImageDescription 0x010e Ascii 32
--- gcc ---
