Cairo requires full client-side rendering support, so it will always
depend on the code currently in libic and libpixregion. I intend for that
code to be shared with the X server (and, at least libpixregion, with
Xlib) so that your system need only a single copy of the code.

Hmm. That's kinda ugly. I wonder if we should do it this way or try and
build a meta-configure script instead.
