After reading the source, it's a bug (or a big undocumented 
limitation). I think that it should be fixed before 1.16.0.

Links are added to the PDF while the document is being created. When a 
link's target is on a page that's not been added yet, an explicit check 
on the page number discards the link creation (in 

A solution would be to add links at the end of the document creation, 
just as it's done for other objects in 

I can try to provide a patch, but it would probably be better from 
people knowing cairo (and C :p).

I've sent a patch, comments welcome!
