           Summary: Cairo should build with default PNG support

          Priority: P2

Cairo should build without PNG only in the same way that GTK+ does:

 - The user has to explicitly turn it off on the configure line
 - The user gets warned that building without PNG will not give you
   a fully functional cairo library.

It's really silly for apps to have to test for Cairo having PNG support
before using it.
