The debate over '#if' vs '#ifdef' will flare up every now and again without any
victors or pressing reason to change all the instances in the code. That said,
the code is gradually become more consistent in its use of '#if'.

Cleanups from sparse and other static analysers are always desired. However
with sparse we first need a method to increase the signal to noise, and then
teach it how to handle the rules peculiar to cairo. So instead we're looking at
other tools such as http://developer.mozilla.org/en/Treehydra which currently
look more promising.

Closing as this bug as they are no more specific actions required. But don't
let that stop you from continuing to test cairo and report as many warning as
you find! (Patches preferred ;-)
