I'm using this pixman since the first time the code passed the test, so 
this should work even if I'm not exactly using a gnome desktop I'm using 
many gtk applications.

Right now it fails on font related tests and it is expected since I 
don't have the required fonts.

it also fails on leaky-dashed-rectangle but I'm not sure if it's pixman 

I updated my branch to build with the current changes.
