Here's what cairo/README says about MSVC versions prior to 7.1:

            MSVC versions earlier than 7.1 are known to miscompile
            parts of cairo and pixman, and so should be avoided. MSVC
            7.1 or later, including the free Microsoft Visual Studio
            Express editions, produce correct code.

So there are known problems that will cause big failures. Given that,
I consider MSVC6 as officially unsupported for cairo, and not worth
putting in non-standard things like 1i64.

If we did decide to start supporting this compiler, I'd definitely
prefer to see a change that did it without duplicating any code. And
if you can come up with something like that, I'd even be willing to
accept it in spite of the larger bugs with MSVC6, (but I thought you
should be aware of them).
