I've also managed to compile Cairo using MS Visual c++ compiler, a plain
win32 binary. I didn't get fontconfig to compile, so I stripped it out
using some #ifdef macro's. I'm also working on a win32 font backend, and
the freetype backend expects a font filename, instead of a pattern. I'm
having trouble with a appearent freetype bug now, but if you are
interested I can send you some static libraries, dll's and the modified
cairo.h, or describe how to compile it.
