[cairo] configure errs in determing if xrender backend supported on

This is a small thing. I am compiling cairo-0.1.21 on RHE 2.1 which has
a older version of Xrender that won't work with the cairo xlib surface.
The configure script checks for xrender.pc which it doesn't find on RHE
2.1. Then it checks for Xrender.h. The configure script finds this and
assumes that cairo can support the xlib surface. On RHE 2.1 this is the
I don't know what the fix is. There doesn't appear to be any version
info in Xrender.h. Perhaps if the pkg-config check fails then the
assumption should be that xlib surfaces are not supported. This would be
consistent with the way decisions about the other surfaces are made.
I am aware I can give the parameter --disable-xlib to the configure
script. I'm just trying to help make the build process automagical.
