I saw it was a bit more complicated than that.. from a clean source
tree, cairo-*.*.* only matches the three cairo-*.pc.in files in src/
but after a build, there are many, many more we want to ignore all
over the tree (and then the ./.gitignore rule fails to ignore THOSE).
This was the simplest, cleanest way I could think of to fix it. By all
means.. improve on it, though ;)
