--- Comment #3 from Dominique Leuenberger <dominique-freedesktop.org at leuenberger.net> 2012-05-01 11:30:35 PDT ---
Cairo trace loads it's library in a 'rude' / non-version aware way like this
(as you say yourself):

if test "x$CAIRO_TRACE_SO" = "x"; then
    for lib in /usr/lib64/cairo/libcairo-trace.so
/usr/lib64/cairo/libcairo-trace.so* /usr/lib64/cairo/libcairo-trace.*.so ; do
        if test -h "$lib" -o -f "$lib"; then

=> so whatever versioning is being used, is ignored anyway and can as well not
be used ==> -avoid-version makes sense (it is not shared library after all)

For -sphinx I'm not sure if the .so ever get's used... this might actually be
just a mistake in Makefile.am and the 'library' is not needed at all (It's also
never referenced as a dependency)

This can be applied without build issues:

=> cairo-sphinx still runs too (well, it starts and exits.. just as before..
not sure how to test this binary)

cairo-fdr: this is apparenty lever loaded / referenced? Might well be just an
old reminder that was not cleaned up?
