My understanding is that the testsuite requires exactly the right 
versions of the various fonts, ghostscript and likely other things and 
likely only ever passed on the original developers setup.
In the real world, I tried using the latest (well recent) Cairo with 
Firefox and I see some fonts where the beginning of the font is faint or 
non-existing. An F where the vertical stroke is missing for example, 
only at the beginning of lines and mostly where Firefox fakes system 
menus. This might be partially caused by the system font but still seems 
to be a regression.
