------- Comment #2 from nikke at acc.umu.se  2007-07-05 01:16 PST -------
I'm getting bitten by this when trying to compile cairo (both 1.2.x and 1.4.x)
on AIX 5.3 which doesn't have Xrender.

configure correctly understands the situation:
  Xlib:          yes
  Xlib Xrender:  no (requires Xrender http://freedesktop.org/Software/xlibs)

However, the build fails on cairo-xlib-surface.c. It includes
cairo-xlib-xrender.h which tries to include Xrender.h, which of course fails.

It would be nice if the code could be fixed to follow what configure says. From
what I have gathered the thing should work without Xrender, it's just that the
code always gets compiled in... I'm rather unclued on what needs changing
though, so I've been unable to whip up a patch for it.

At the very least, fix configure to disable the xlib-stuff altogether if it
doesn't find xrender, if that's the recommended workaround.
