The cairo-perf tools are ugly enough on the inside and out that we're
uncomfortable supporting them for distribution.  The tools are unstable,
undocumented, their user interfaces are rather sad and volatile, and some of
them are tied to living and being run from a checkout of the cairo git
repository.  The data formats they read and write are also unstable and may not
parse across releases.  If someone wishes to package the perf tools, of course
they are at liberty to do so and all the more power to them, but they should do
so knowing that all of them can break every release.

As there hasn't been any work done to clean them up in the months that this has
been opened and discussed on #cairo, I'm closing this bug report as "Won't
Fix," since nobody has stepped up to do so.  Sorry.
