[cairo] Good news/bad news on OS X

I just thought I'd tell you that I've successfully built and installed 
Cairo on OS X --without-x.  I also ran the PS/basket demo successfully, 
although the makefile should use pkg-config for libpng as well as 
cairo.  One thing I wasn't sure about -- is the output in basket.png 
supposed to be the same as basket.ps?  I got very good output in 
basket.ps but basket.png was not so nice.  It seems to be missing the 
outline.  I'll attach it so you can see what I mean.

Interesting.  Reading the code I think that the basket is supposed to 
be red with a black outline, but I end up with it rendered cyan with a 
blue outline in the .ps file and, light greenish with a strange 
pixelated green/yellow partial outline that might actually be a botched 
attempt at anti-aliasing in the .png file.

Hmm... byte-order problems perhaps?
