So this looks like a disagreement between the cairo-using code you're trying
to compile and the way cairo was configured when compiled for the opensuse

> /usr/lib/libcairomm-1.0.so: undefined reference to `cairo_glitz_surface_create'

This means that the program you are using expects cairo's "glitz" backend to be
configured/compiled in. But the opensuse packages you are using do not have the
glitz backend enabled.

That packaging is actually expected, (the glitz backend is still "experimental"
in cairo since the glitz library hasn't had been released with any API
stability guarantee yet).

I'd suggest fixing the cairo-using code to test at compile time if the glitz
backend is available. It can do this by using:

      ... cairo-glitz code here

Good luck!
