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.
