Just apt-get source gphoto2, then adds manually the Canon IXUS v2 to
the list of supported devices (in some .h file), then
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot to get your new .deb.
The Canon IXUS v2 is already supported by the current gphoto2, but
gphoto2 is not aware of it.
It is not the cleaner solution since you should customize the version
of the .deb, but I think this is easier this way.
Use free-form input when possible.
