        To whom it may concern;

        I'm trying to use SPLASH, a smoothed particle hydrodynamics visualization software to create visualizations for my academic research in astrophysics. Splash has a dependency on the cairo library, and I've been having some trouble using Splash, and I believe it may be due to some issues with cairo (version 1.12.18); it is also possible that cairo has nothing to do with it, but it's worth a try to see.

        The visualization end is the problem though, and I thought maybe the cairo graphics backend may be the issue. When I ran the configuration and looked at the output text file, I saw a few things that jumped out at me. Packages missing (gtk, librsvg, gdk, poppler-glib, etc), 'no such file/directory' errors (CoreGraphics.h, libiberty.h, confsdefs.h, ApplicationServices.h, etc), undefined references to flags like -lbfd, and so on.

        I don't know how important or necessary these things are, but I wanted to check to make sure it wasn't an issue with cairo.
