           Summary: build breaks on compilation after successful
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.4.10
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
               URL: http://www.niceties.it/cairo_build.html
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general

I am reporting a build failure, after successful configuration
on Debian on x86-64, using a custom prefix and --disable-png and

First the absence of zlib.h broke the build, even though configuration
says it is necessary only for some features:

cairo-ps-surface.c:50:18: error: zlib.h: No such file or directory

After installing zlib, and thus making zlib.h available in $includedir,
the compilation continues, but a similar problem happens with the xrender

cairo-xlib-xrender.h:45:36: error: X11/extensions/Xrender.h: No such file or

I would suggest that if cairo requires zlib and xrender to be compiled
successfully, the build system should detect such problems and configure time,
and not break during compilation.

Please follow the URL for full configure output and full make output
for both steps (step 1:without zlib, step2:with zlib installed)
