Description: Installed digikam without the jasper optional dependency and it does not start due to "digikam: error while loading shared libraries: libjasper.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Additional info:
* package version(s) digikam 7.1.0-5

ldd $(which digikam) | grep "not found"
libjasper.so.4 => not found

This might have been introduced by commit: https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-packages/commit/736f27595fe828f7a21d329d7abd8caf9d459c66#diff-3e341d2d9c67be01819b25b25d5e53ea3cdf3a38d28846cda85a195eb9b7203a (where jasper is made a build dependency, but added only as optional install dependency)

Installing jasper (with "pacman -S jasper") fixes the issue

Steps to reproduce: install digikam on a newly installed Arch system.

This task depends upon

Looks like /usr/lib/libdigikamcore.so.7.1.0 links to it, not just the plugin.
