I tried to install cairo with +universal and +no_x11. But i could only  
add +no_x11 because i got the following error with +universal:

checking whether cairo's PostScript surface backend feature could be  
enabled... no (requires zlib http://www.gzip.org/zlib/)
configure: error: recommended PostScript surface backend feature could  
not be enabled

Although zlib is installed (i tried to do it manualy). Now i still  
don't have "cairo-surface.c" file in my Cairo.framework. Therefore it  
don't runs.
Btw. +quartz was added by default on os x.
I think the only thing to do is to make MacPorts building the cairo- 
surface.c file. But i don't know how. Using "locate cairo-surface.c"  
brings no results.
