Please try building the archive available here:

It should be as simple as decompressing it and running:

(assuming that you already added macports to the path).
If both these commands run successfully, the problem is likely
in the macports packaging.
If they fail, either your build environment or cairo build configuration
(or both) is broken.
Could you try this way of building cairo?
If it still fails, the "config.log" file might be useful (together with the
error you get in the shell) to understand the problem.
