Hi Elliott,

I think your problem is not related to cairo... worse, I bet you
do not even have to build cairo. The only reasons I see for doing
a personal build are (1) you are a cairo developer or (2) the
package provided by your system is too old or (3) you want to use
some custom configuration.

It seems you just have some missing dependency (ubuntu and debian
split every package in development and runtime flavours). If you
have trouble building splash, it is better to look for help on
their forums.
