I just tried to create PDF output using cairo+pango and the Doulos SIL
font under windows. With the binaries from
works fine. So it's probaly that the pdf backend in R's Cairo package
isn't compiled with all the options you require. I suppose you have
to talk to the developer of that package. Otherwise I have no clue.
I case you want to try if the setup you have works at all under windows
I attached the test thingy. If desired I can send you the exe.
