Thanks Bill,

I just tested it on machines with and without the xrender.pc file.

It looks like when xrender.pc is available it adds a redundant
"-lXrender" to cairo.pc. It doesn't seem that this is a big deal
though, (pkgconfig seems to cull the duplicate).

Also, without xrender.pc, it would be nice to figure out how to
convince PKG_CHCEK_MODULES to not emit this big chunk of text:

	Package xrender was not found in the pkg-config search path.
	Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xrender.pc'
	to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
	No package 'xrender' found

But it now builds here where it wouldn't before, so this is fine for

All committed now.
