This sounds like a problem with your setup, not a problem with Cairo.

> FONTCONFIG_LIBS=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Fontconfig-2.4.0/lib/
> FREETYPE_CFLAGS=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Freetype-2.2.1/include/
> FREETYPE_LIBS=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Freetype-2.2.1/lib/

> checking for FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden... no
> checking for FT_Load_Sfnt_Table... no
