Thanks, but I had already tried that and it doesn't work. Since 
the `make` command failed, `make install` will run the compile 
step again, which fails, so the install fails.

But maybe there is a way to stop the tests from compiling; I'll 
look for that.

In the meantime, I thought about going back to packaged cairo 
and an older version of Cairo.pm. I was able to install Cairo.pm 
v1.60 (from couple of years ago) and that is working fine for my needs.

I'd rather solve it though so I don't have an ancient package 
that I need to ensure doesn't get updated (or try to be updated).
