> I'm forwarding to you a bug report from a MacPorts user. There is apparently a problem with the cairo configure script where it will incorrectly find a /usr/local/lib/librt.a and try to find symbols in it, which it should be finding in libsystem.dylib instead. Here is our bug report about this:

The problem seems to be some kind of invalid environment for the
compiler (currently the pthread check is very paranoid, so it will
fail even upon warnings).
The issue might be related to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30910
The config.log file should contain some more details about the failure.

Can you check if it builds using this guide
http://cairographics.org/end_to_end_build_for_mac_os_x/ ?

The mail is hidden, so this is not so easy to do.
