I started getting this kind of error a lot in the following situation:

- I had a bunch of software that I had configured/built
- I upgraded my distro (which also upgraded my toolchain, libtool, etc)
- modified and recompiled the code after the upgrade -> lots of
libtool X-Foo errors

My solution was just to delete all of the libtool related scripts and
re-run ./autogen.sh.  Note that I didn't necessarily experience this
issue on cairo itself, and it might not be the same as the issue
you're having since you appear to be building from a tarball rather
than a git checkout, but it might spark an idea...
